ICC Model Transfer of Technology Contract

No. @674E

ISBN : 978-92-842-0023-8

As technology and IP rights become increasingly important, more and more companies across the globe conclude transactions to transfer technology among business entities.

This model contract covers the situation where a manufacturer licenses a package of information and industrial property rights to a licensee company. The licensee can then also manufacture the products, using the licensor’s technology.

A useful introduction explains in detail what you need to take into account when transferring technology: from anti-trust to tax issues and other pitfalls. Helpful annexes make this model a vital tool for international licensors and licensees who seek a form that is fair and balanced for both sides and can be used across a range of industries.
