The Synthetic Biology SRI and partners at the Institute for Manufacturing, Centre for the Study of Existential Risk and Faculty of Law have been awarded a CRASSH Faculty Research Group. This programme supports groups of Cambridge faculty members working together with a common interdisciplinary research interest. The group will explore the impact of Open IP strategies such as open source licensing, patent pledges and patent pools on the economic and societal impact of emerging technologies including synthetic biology and artificial intelligence through a seminar series, reading group and other activities during the 2017-18 academic year.

In particular, the group is interested to explore in what contexts open IP might facilitate transitions to sustainability and societal equity.

More information forthcoming on the meeting schedule and further plans for the group. If you are interested in joining, email synbio@hermes.cam.ac.uk.
