Seminar on Open Innovation, Intellectual Property Rights and Dispute Resolution in European Research Collaborations
Organized by the WIPO Arbitration and Mediation Center and the European Liaison Office of the German Research Organizations (KOWI)
Cologne, Tuesday, June 28, 2011
Intellectual property rights are valuable assets for R&D collaborations and commercial transactions. An increasing amount of cross-border Open Innovation co-operations involve IP-related interaction between universities, research organizations, companies, suppliers and customers. The complex nature of such transactions may give rise to disputes involving parties from different countries with different business, legal and cultural backgrounds, as well as attitudes and expectations.
This seminar will focus on the concept of Open Innovation and its implementation in projects and partnering networks. Representatives from universities, technology licensing offices and companies will present their experience with contract negotiations, intellectual property and dispute resolution. The seminar is organized on the occasion of the 23rd KoWi Annual Conference on European Union Research Funding (KoWi-Bundestagung) organized by the The UAS7 German Universities of Applied Sciences and the European Liaison Office of the German Research Organisations (KoWi).
The faculty for this Workshop will consist of speakers from industry, universities, and technology transfer offices, research organizations and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
The Program will consist of sessions devoted to the following subjects:
- Open Innovation – New Forms of R&D collaboration
- WIPO ADR Procedures – Trends in Dispute Resolution
- Open Innovation in Practice – Projects and Perspectives
Who should attend?
The workshop is tailored for lawyers, patent and trademark attorneys and representatives from industry, research institutes, universities and public organizations involved in research and development and technology transfer activities.
