Tool #4: Collaboration Agreement between re-use actors  

The collaboration agreement is a fundamental tool for the cooperation between regional collaborative partners of a ReUse network. This tool is setting up the parameters for a productive, fruitful, professional and ongoing collaboration in the field of re-use in a particular region. With this tool rules and roles of each partner as well as joint goals in terms of qualities and quantities are defined in order to improve re-use activities in a defined region and to avoid potential conflicts.

This tool gives a general overview about the important topics in such an agreement and shall serve as a template (with no claim to completeness).  It should be translated into the specific national language and signed by all the partners involved.
