The Cornell/WIPO Collaboration
Creating — and getting students involved in — a global public sector IP-based innovation community
This project builds on a collaboration between Cornell and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) involving technical innovation development at 70 research institutions (universities and government agencies) in eight countries. The purpose is human capacity building and economic development through invention, IP mechanisms, technology transfer and partnerships with the private sector. With support from this grant, students in PLBRG 4050: IP Management for Scientists, Engineers and Entrepreneurs will be directly integrated into project teams involved in the evaluation, strategy development and implementation of IP management and technology commercialization projects with teams of WIPO experts, inventor and technology transfer professionals from participating research institutions.
