Workshop on Intellectual Property, Biotechnology Capacity and Development (Buenos Aires, Argentina)
This event – hosted at the Argentinian Agencia Nacional de Promoción Científica y Tecnológica – was a workshop initiated by the IPMG in the context of its research project “Legal models of intellectual property protection: a transdisciplinary approach” funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and the Canadian Institutes for Health Research.
The workshop brought together policy-makers, non-governmental organizations, industry and academics to examine how developing countries can best configure their intellectual property systems to attract and retain scientists and investment in local research and development. The workshop focused specifically on policy options available to developing countries to enhance their scientific infrastructure. These options include novel mechanisms to make venture capital available to start-up technology firms, collaborative science mechanisms and novel reward systems for innovation. In addition, the workshop explored cutting edge social science research on innovation systems and intellectual property.
