Intellectual Property Management and Open Innovation in Universities
There are still many people that would consider intellectual property an impediment to openness, especially within a university setting. While this may be true in some circumstances, it is increasingly becoming clear that intellectual property is a critical tool to govern open innovation. This seminar will discuss and provide examples of how intellectual property management can play a critical role in developing open innovation in universities by facilitating both research collaborations and the utilization of research results. The goal of the seminar will be to show how university innovation systems actors as well as researchers can create greater value in their R&D activities through intellectual property management.
