Collaboration agreement

What's a collaboration agreement, and when do you need it?

Sometimes called a ‘co-operation agreement’ or ‘unincorporated joint venture’, this is a very straightforward collaboration agreement designed for two businesses who are combining their expertise and/or resources on a project or programme of activity.

It covers collaborative efforts generally (no sector/industry-specific bias) and is different from supply relationships, like distribution, agency, franchising, and contracts for supply of services and/or goods. There are separate templates for these arrangements.

This template is appropriate for collaborative activities between businesses operating and based in the UK.
