International Technology Transfer Agreement
Index of the contract
This is a model of contract to be used by companies for technology transfer, either through granting intellectual property rights (patents, trademarks, utility models, industrial designs) or technical assistance and know how. In the first case, the intellectual property and exclusive rights are granted, acknowledged and internationally registered, in order to manufacture and trade products. In the second case, the contract deals with the transfer of intellectual property which has no international legal recognition, but does have intrinsic value.
In the most important aspects of the contract (technology, exclusivity, royalties, termination of the contract, applicable law and competent jurisdiction, etc.) different alternatives have been provided, for the most appropriate one to be selected according to who drafts the contract (Licensor or Licensee).
This International Technology Transfer Contract is designed for international operations in which the Licensor and Licensee are in different countries, but with slight adjustments can also be used for domestic transactions in which both are located in the same country.
The language of this contract is English. It is also available in Spanish.
