"Innovation and intellectual property"
Should we abolish, reinvent or find new forms of protecting intellectual property? Debating future challenges to encourage innovation and growth in a global world.
Università degli studi di Brescia- Thursday the 22nd June 2017, 10. a.m.
The I.S.E.O institute is pleased to announce details of its 50th international conference, promoted together with the university of Brescia. The meeting will investigate a topical theme such as the bond between innovation, intellectual property and patents. It is common to argue that intellectual property in the form of copyright and patent is necessary for the innovation and creation of ideas and inventions: is it really true? Are norms and rules protecting innovation or do they represent an obstacle to innovation and growth? Each speaker will discuss this macro theme using his specific approach and point of view. The panel can count on the presence of Jean Tirole, Nobel Laureate in Economics 2014 and head of Toulouse School of Economics, Jacques Darcy, head of "Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property" at the European Investment Fund and Michele Boldrin, professor at the University of Washington, among the leading experts on patents and intellectual property. Roberto Savona, professor at the University of Brescia, will coordinate the conference.
