How will the ownership of IPR be managed?

The fundamental premise of the DGP is that the broader value chain should be engaged to the maximum extent possible and as such, information and intelligence sharing is encouraged across all UK companies involved. However, DGP recognise that the protection and management of IPR is key to the success of any partnership and sensitive information and IPR will actively be protected and managed through the tiered membership level of the DGP/UKDSC. DGP founders, UKDSC Associate members and Community of Interest Members will abide by the DGP Partnering Principles Charter and associated non-disclosure agreements to ensure information is handled in the appropriate and correct manner.
