The owners of the results generated under an H2020 project can decide not to protect their results and transfer their ownership. The beneficiaries must, however, ensure that their obligations regarding such results apply to the new owner (e.g. protection, dissemination, exploitation, access rights).
Unless agreed otherwise, prior notice about the intention to transfer the results must be given to the other project beneficiaries together with sufficient information concerning the future owner.
Any other beneficiary may object to the transfer if it can show that it would adversely affect its access rights. In this case, the transfer may not take place, until the beneficiaries concerned reach an agreement.
