On the one hand, it is the precise drafting of confidentiality clauses, by identifying in concrete terms confidential information and processing methods, as well as the persons entitled to process it, on the other hand, the identification of existing know-how and the provisions relating to ownership, use and, in general, access rights to the results of the research project. The success of the interaction between major partners and differentiated partners depends to a large extent on the adequacy of the treatment of legal rights. The tension between two conflicting needs risks creating difficult difficulties to overcome: given the need to guarantee the spiritual heritage of each participant, it is necessary to give each participant access to the knowledge of the other members of the consortium in order to grow collaborative intellectual activity. Furthermore, it should be stressed that the ultimate objective of the current Community policy to promote research and innovation is not only to produce new technological knowledge, but above all to ensure its optimal use. There is no rigid procedure for the formation of such a contract, which regulates the pre-contract liability of the parties. In some cases, particularly with regard to the initial phase, immediately after the publication of calls for proposals, only confidentiality agreements are used to ensure at least the protection of the information exchanged for the development of proposals. Indeed, given the limited time available between the publication of the tenders and the conduct of the notice, some participants may sign documents without properly negotiating them, resulting in a lack of guarantees regarding rights such as the provision of information and their confidentiality within the consortium.
