Open Science: The reality and implications for KTOs

The most recent EU policies encourage the adoption of an Open Science approach to the scientific process. This approach, based on collaborative efforts and results sharing aims to ensure investments have the greatest impact on research and innovation. In addition, private organisations require incentives to encourage them 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 Intellectual Property Rights (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.
