EARTO is pleased to invite you to its online webinar on the relation between the Open Science policy and Intellectual Property Rights, on Monday 16 November 2020, 14.00-16.00 CEST

The role of Research, Development and Innovation is essential to fulfil Europe’s ambitions such as boosting its economic competitiveness and prosperity, building resilience and technology sovereignty in strategic value chains, or mastering the twin transitions towards a green and digital society. To reach those objectives, ensuring the right framework conditions to stimulate knowledge and technology co-creation in Europe and prevent unwanted regulatory barriers hampering European innovation capacity has never been more essential. Europe now needs to strike the right balance between the benefits of the EU Open Science policy to enhance the accessibility and re-use of RD&I results on the one hand, and the essential role of Intellectual Property Rights to strengthen the collaborative development of knowledge and technology while fostering industry’s uptake of RD&I results on the other.

          To that end, EARTO put forward a set of recommendations in July 2020 to promote a balanced approach between IPRs and Open Science policy in Europe in its Paper “Towards a Balanced Approach Between IPRs and Open Science Policy”.
