Open Science: The reality and implications for TTOs
The most recent EU policies encourage the adoption of an Open Science approach to the scientific process based on collaborative effort and results sharing, which aims to ensure the greatest impact of investments put into research and innovation. In addition, private organisations require incentives to undertake the risky investments needed to translate research results into market-ready innovations. The conclusions of a workshop organised by the JRC and the DG Research and Innovation in 2017 show that there are no incompatibilities between IPR and Open Science. However, how can universities strike the right balance between IPR protection and Open Science?
This session will provide participants with a clear understanding of the Open Science approach and its implications for IP management and technology transfer practices.
