Online Workshop on Intellectual Property Rights

27 March 2024

RUN-EU PLUS is organizing an online workshop on Intellectual Property Rights in March 2024.

In open science, sharing research data and publications openly is encouraged. However, researchers must navigate IPR issues related to copyright and licensing when making their work available to the public. They also sometimes seek patents for their inventions to protect their commercial interests. Balancing open sharing with patent protection can be challenging.
