This meeting, titled 'How European Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures boost Innovation by Open Access', will take place on 20 June 2017 in Brussels, Belgium. The meeting is part of the Horizon 2020 project, CORBEL, to assess how the 11 Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures involved in the project can stimulate innovation throughout Europe. A possible avenue for this is through providing open access to their key assets, such as resources, technologies, data and knowledge. 

Topics for the event include the following: 

  • How resources, technologies, data and knowledge provided by different RIs can address industries’ needs optimally
  • IP strategy in open innovation and new business models
  • What could be the contribution of Expert Centres, a novel model of public-private partnership, to open innovation?

The event will run from 09:00-18:00 and, although the event is free, interested participants must register, which works on a first come, first served basis.
