For pre-competitive (non-proprietary) research where the users agree to publication of data arising from the access, the academic fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre. (A publication delay can be negotiated to allow IP and patent processes). Consult the Instruct-ERIC catalogue for a full list of services available for pre-competitive research.
For proprietary research where users own the outcome of the work and there is no requirement to publish, a commercial fee will be levied by the Instruct Centre. Intellectual Property (IP) issues must be agreed before commencement of the access. To consult the list of services offered to industry for proprietary research, click here.
