On intellectual property rights (IPR) one can turn to European IP Helpdesk for assistance. It provides latest news, events and documents on the issue.

European IP Helpdesk has developed a guide covering the basic facts on central Intellectual Property (IP) aspects in Horizon 2020 project life. The aim is to guide one through the expectations and requirements of the European Commission related to IP in Horizon 2020 projects and to offer hands-on advice and tips on how to put IP management into practice.

The Annotated Model Grant Agreement (2019) which is reachable through the Commission’s Funding & Tenders portal gives detailed guidance in handling IPR related costs in the projects.
