Open Innovation and Intellectual Property Management in Health/Life Science
Intellectual property is often considered as an impediment to openness. 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 explain the need for open innovation in the health/life science sector and provide examples of how intellectual property management can play a critical role in developing open innovation by facilitating both research collaborations and the utilization of research results. The goal of the seminar will be to show how health/life science firms, innovation systems actors and research groups can create greater value in their R&D activities through an intellectual property management approach to open innovation.
