In carrying out I-A-G Collaborations, in some instances, problems in “handling and utilization of intellectual property” and “conflict of interest” will arise. Please read through our intellectual property policies and conflict-of-interest policies at the links below, to understand our basic approaches. However, responses in individual situations may differ from these basic approaches, so please inquire with AiRIMaQ concerning particular cases.
