Managing IP in the times of Covid-19

Hosted by Massimiliano Granieri

The pandemic prompted universities and public research organizations to re-think about their IP management strategies. Various forms of open licenses have been developed, from the Open Covid Pledge to KTI Covid – 19 NERF license, granting free temporary access to IP rights to tackle the coronavirus crisis. To what extent do IPRs represent a barrier to access innovation in times of health emergencies? Massimiliano Granieri, Associate Professor of Comparative Private Law at the University of Brescia (Italy), will guide us in a common reflection, at the intersection of law and ethics, on public research, IPRs, innovation and Covid-19.
