At the start, it is crucial to set common objectives, align interests and reach clear agreements on all aspects of the collaboration. This applies not only to a structural or long-term joint venture or partnership but also to an occasional collaboration.

Rules must be determined on a financial, organisation and legal level. This concerns the entire period of cooperation, but also when the partners want to separate or when there are conflicts.
