Infoshare: IPR Policy – 19 April 2022

GÉANT infoshare - IPR Policy

19 April 2022, 14:00-15:30 CEST

The Intellectual Property Policy for the GÉANT Project was introduced in 2011 (you can find it here) and was not updated since.

The first steps to create a new proposal were then taken in 2019, and in April 2020 the draft of new Intellectual Property Policy for the GÉANT Project was shared with the community in an online infoshare. Following the presentation and until September 2020, more than 150 comments of different complexity and nature were submitted. Those comments were thoroughly analysed and – after careful consideration of each comment – an updated version of the draft Intellectual Property Policy for the GÉANT Project was created, together with a document addressing each comment. The synthesis of the feedback and the drafted IPR Policy will be presented (for further discussion/consultation) during the IPR Policy Infoshare on 19 April 2022 at 14:00 CEST.

This is a perfect opportunity to update the IPR framework as the new project (GN5) will start in January 2023. If the IPR policy will not be updated, the old policy will still apply.
