Frequently asked questions
The TN FAQ was adapted with the following question:
Q: In objective 3.3c it is said that the assets handled by the TN must be free of any intellectual property rights. Is this a general requirement for any TN? And what does it actually mean in the frame of objective 3.3c, as assets usually always have IPR, even if they can be used freely?
A: The general requirement for any TN is that results and outcomes should be available in the public domain and widely disseminated (for example through publications and conferences). The requirement on the IPR of handled assets in objective 3.3c is not a general one, but a specific requirement for this objective. As regards the meaning of "free of any intellectual property rights", it should be understood in this context as "assets, which can be used freely and free of charge, i.e without licensing, royalties or any other kind of compensation."
