The roles of partners within a partnership

13 January 2010

We represented a not-for-profit organisation which was one a number of partners that received the benefit of European Regional Development Funding for a major project involving freight and transport solutions in the North Sea region. The project concerned involved partners from various countries within the North Sea region and required attention to the roles played by the different partners within the partnership, liability for public procurement rules, liabilities of partners for the obligations of other partners, and liabilities to outside public funders, and also termination provisions and intellectual property issues.
