Synthesis: Rethinking Economics and Open IP

19 November 2018, 13:00 - 15:00

Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road

Economics underpins the co-evolution of IP, innovation and inequality so it is vital for understanding the consequences of openly sharing knowledge and technology.  During the term we have seen intersect with new thinking about economics of innovation in the face of global challenges and a pressing need to transition to sustainable energy and industry (Mazzucato, 2015). We aim to bridge these schools of thought and consider their significance in the context of emerging technologies such as green energy, distributed manufacturing, AI and synthetic biology.

The Open IP Research Network will consolidate our thoughts from the rest of the term’s meetings on the topic of  ‘Rethinking economics and Open IP’, proposing suggestions for future research projects and adding to our collection of briefings and resource sheets to share with the scholarly community.
