Collaboration Agreements

Writing a good agreement is not easy. Innovation Norway and The Research Council Of Norway has prepared a number of templates that provide a good starting point for different types of agreements.


In some cases it might be appropriate to draw up a confidentiality agreement between the parties in order to discuss confidential information regarding a potential collaboration.

Innovation Norway provides the following agreement templates:

  • Confidentiality Agreement
  • Letter of Intent
  • Option Agreement
  • Licence Agreement
  • Manufacturing Agreement
  • Project Collaboration Agreement
  • Notification of Employee Invention

Go to more information about the agreement templates from Innovation Norway (external site).

The Research Council of Norway offers several examples of collaboration agreements that regulate working methods, rights and obligations between the partners in a project.

Download the collaboration agreement templates from The Research Council of Norway (external site).

These templates are publicly available, general documents and should be adapted to each project.
