Seminar and reading group series on open technologies

Dear All

I’m co-convening for the second year a seminar series at the University of Cambridge on “Open intellectual property models for emerging technologies and implications for an equitable society” (long title, complex subject :grinning:). The guiding question of our research group is the extent to which open technologies (like open science hardware!) result in equitable sharing of knowledge. We have three themes over the coming terms:

Michaelmas Term 2018 (Oct-Dec 2018): Rethinking economics and Open IP
Lent Term 2019 (Jan-Mar 2019): Values, motivations and politics of Open IP
Easter Term 2019 (Apr-Jun 2019): Advancing research in Open IP
You can see the full programme here.

I warmly invite you to participate in the meetings! Our next on “Economics, Law and Intellectual Property” will be on Mon 22 Oct, 13:00-15:00 UTC+1 with remote participation via Zoom. If you’re interested in receiving future updates, you can sign up for the Research Network newsletter.

Best wishes


Economics, Law and Intellectual Property - Professor Ove Granstrand (Chalmers University)
22 October 2018, 13:00 - 15:00 UTC+1, lunch from 12:30
Seminar Room SG1, Alison Richard Building, 7 West Road OR join remotely via Zoom
Hosted by the Open Intellectual Property Research Network at CRASSH

Prof Ove Granstrand is Professor in Industrial Management and Economics at Chalmers University, Sweden. He is the editor of “Economics, Law and Intellectual Property” and a Leverhulme visiting scholar at the Institute for Manufacturing for academic year 2018-19. Prof Granstrand has published extensively on how scientific work and technological progress now depend largely on questions of who owns what, as do the success and profits of countless authors, artists, inventors, researchers and industrialists. Economic, legal and ethical issues play a central role in the increasingly complex balance between unilateral gains and universal benefits from the “knowledge society”.

This seminar is part of the Open Intellectual Property Models of Emerging Technologies and Implications for the Equitable Society Research Netwoks Series. More information can be found on the CRASSH website.
