Brookings Mountain West presents “Innovation, Inequality, and the Commercialization of Academic Research,” a talk by Walter Valdivia, fellow, Governance Studies, Center for Technology Innovation.
Patent policy is rarely debated in relation to its distributive consequences. In particular, the Bayh-Dole Act has been discussed in terms of its effects on the pace of innovation or the organization of science. However, this lecture re-assesses this policy from the perspective of a fair distribution of resources, both those committed to and those created by research-based innovation. Specifically, examining the management of university’s intellectual property, Valdivia will identify the institutional arrangements that reinforce a very asymmetric distribution of political and economic resources among universities and then characterize subtle but important links between these inequalities and the social distribution of the benefits of innovation.
Lecture is free and open to the public. No reservation or ticket required.
