Yhteisprojektien säännöt

  1. Projects must be joint technology development with both parties (Finnish SME and Alberta SME) contributing to technology development.
  2. Projects cannot be an outsourcing of technology development to other party (one-sided development).
  3. Products from the project cannot be a customization of a product for one specific company's use. Products need to have wider implications for industry.
  4. Projects must have benefits/outcomes for both Finland and Alberta.
  5. An intellectual property rights plan must be in place prior to grant agreements being signed (approximately August 2015).
  6. A joint project should create longer term, competitive business assets and/or capabilities for both companies, meaning:
  • longer term = beyond the joint project's term
  • competitive = capable of competing internationally
  • business assets = a new or improved product, service or pilot versions of these, etc.
