The identification of the Intellectual Properties (IP) resulting from a collaborative research and development project and the determination of correct levels of ownership regarding each partner is not only a matter of justice, but also an important requirement to ensure a smooth cooperation. In this paper, an example of a procedure to identify and characterize the IPs resulting from a collaborative project on " infrastructures for virtual enterprises" is presented. The distinction between Intellectual Property and economic value is described by briefly discussing the technological roadmap that turns research results into marketable products.
