IP Workshop: Communication of Technical Knowledge


IP Workshop: Communication of Technical Knowledge


Typically, invention and innovation are collective endeavors. Many people combine their talent, effort and knowledge to bring new technologies to the marketplace. Effective invention and innovation requires effective communication of technical knowledge between participants. In practice, this communication happens in various ways and different laws and policies affect how well these channels work. Although some research has separately explored each of these different aspects of communication, it might be helpful to gain a more comprehensive view.

This interdisciplinary workshop explores various channels used to communicate technical knowledge among inventors and innovators, and how law and policy affect such communication.
