D6.1 - Consolidated legal report on the NexTrust pilot cases
Deliverable 6.1 focuses on the legal issues that came up during the pilot cases conducted within the NexTrust project, the solutions found, the course of the legal process management and the lessons learned.
The NexTrust project provided a legal framework for all of the participants. A centrepiece of this legal framework was the independent trustee who acted as a “black-box”, receiving commercially sensitive information, processing respectively analysing it and then facilitating the collaboration in a legally compliant manner. The NexTrust participants were thoroughly instructed on the significance of legal compliance, especially with respect to confidentiality and competition law.
