The Lambert toolkit is for universities and companies that wish to undertake collaborative research projects with each other

The IPO would like to identify awareness of the use and impact of the Lambert Toolkit. Please complete this survey to provide your input on the Lambert Toolkit and the IPO’s support for university-business collaboration.


The Lambert working group has created this toolkit to assist academic or research institutions and industrial partners who wish to carry out research projects together.

The objectives of the toolkit are to:

  • facilitate negotiations between potential partners
  • reduce the time, money and effort required to secure agreement
  • provide examples of best practice

The toolkit consists of:

  • a decision guide
  • 7 model research collaboration (one to one) agreements (1-6)
  • 4 consortium (multi-party) agreements (A-D)
  • heads of terms and variation agreements for both collaboration and consortium agreements
  • guidance notes

The model agreements are starting points and their use is not compulsory. Each model agreement envisages a different set of circumstances and are not sector specific, allowing for flexible use. However the model agreements can be adapted to meet the particular circumstances of your project.
