Dear colleagues, dear students,
we would like to invite you to a talk on June 23 at 3 pm by Dr. Carsten Richter (Lübeck University/ IEBD | Institut für Entrepreneurship und Business Development) on “Reconciling Intellectual property and Open Science in the response to emerging diseases“
While Open Science is about providing unlimited access to scientific knowledge, the idea of intellectual property is to grant an exclusive right to use technical inventions. Drawing on the experience of the MERS and SARS-CoV-2 outbreaks, Mr. Richter will discuss how the two concepts can be combined to encourage rather than hinder innovation.
The talk will be held in English and will take place in WebEx. Just email us if you are interested!
We look forward to seeing you!
