Public Versus Private Perspectives on Open IP

The goals of the public, private and third sector in leveraging intellectual property often differ substantially and this has significant implications for access to technology and creating an equitable society. In addition, real life practices in all of these sectors may not reflect stated goals and policies. This session will examine perspectives on Open IP from industry, NGO and University tech transfer perspectives, taking the University of Cambridge as a key example.
