Respect for intellectual property

What we create together during the event will be our joint IP (yours and ours) and we will provide clear guidance in advance in terms of what we expect from you and what you can expect from us.

As organizer of this challenge we will in principle have a first right to use, further develop or exploit this IP together with you. If we decide we are not or no longer interested in such IP or specific parts of such IP, you will have the right to use it with others.

“I want to thank you for the professional manner in which this event was conducted and how IP was handled. My organization warned me that some of these kinds of events are just "idea mining," and that I needed to be very cautious going into this. I was pleased that this was not the case with AkzoNobel.” - Mark Mascal, University of California
