Workshop on IPRs in Nanotechnology: Issues, Trends and Challenges for India
Date: 28 January 2010
Venue: Conference Room, TERI, New Delhi
Organized by: Science and Technology Area, Resources and Global Security Division, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI); in association with IDRC
As part of our IDRC supported 3 year project on "Capability, Governanceand Nanotechnology Developments: a focus on India", the Science andTechnology Area, TERI is organizing a one day stakeholder workshop on IPRs in Nanotechnology: Issues, Trends and Challenges for India on 28th January 2010 at The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI), India Habitat Centre,New Delhi. The overall aim of the workshop is to discuss the broad issuesand challenges which emerge in the context of IPRs in the emergent field ofnanotechnology for India. The workshop hopes to provide a platform fordiverse stakeholders to deliberate on these issues and arrive atrecommendations for the Indian IPR regime, which helps reconciles the dualobjectives of incentivising invention and ensuring the public good.
The workshop is broadly divided into the following four sessions:
- Session I: Reconciling innovation with the public good: Challenges for the Indian IP Regime in Nanotechnology
- Session II: The Indian Nano Patent Landscape and Key Players
- Session III: IPRs in Public Funded Nano Research: Incentivising public funded research or Privatisation of 'public goods'?
- Session IV: Facilitating Public Access to Nanotechnology Innovations: Beyond IP
