  • Workshop Report on Managing IPR in a knowledge-based economy - bioinformatics and the influence of public policy, Working Paper, Final Report - November 2001

Abstract

This workshop on "Managing IPR in a knowledge-based economy - Bioinformatics and the influence of public policy." was organised by the Research Directorate-General of the European Commission, in the context of a series of workshops supporting the European Research Area (ERA) activities.
A group of experts was invited to meet and discuss this topic, and to provide a summary of the background, problem areas, current situation, and guidelines and options for action by the Commission and policy makers and organisations in member states.
A workshop "Terms of Reference" and documents and references were provided before the workshop.
Attendees submitted short, highly condensed summary papers on their contributions, which are included here with the workshop summary, giving their points of view.
The workshop consisted of presentations by invited speakers. These presentations were followed by open discussion.
The workshop was also attended by members of the Commission services, who provided background information on relevant activities.
This workshop report was written and assembled by the Rapporteur with the aid of the Commission services and the officer responsible for the workshop, based on summaries of the workshop discussions, inputs from the chairmen and participants during and after the workshop, and the contents of the submitted papers.
The executive summary represents a large convergence of views. Where they occur, significant differences are explicitly presented as such.
