Welcome (from the agenda)

"Welcome to this interdisciplinary conference, where a group of distinguished experts will explore and discuss the complex and dynamic interface where innovation, intellectual property and international development intersect.

In the 21st century, food security, poverty alleviation and economic development will increasingly depend on international diffusion and application of innovation. Building a global IP system which fosters technology transfer in this globalized open innovation market will be among the key challenges to address, particularly for developing countries.

This will require pragmatic policies and strategies to accelerate catch-up and engagement in the rapidly emerging globally networked innovation, knowledge economy."
