How European Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures boost Innovation by Open Access

Brussels, 20 June 2017, 9:00 - 18:00

The purpose of this meeting is to explore how the 11 Biological and Medical Sciences Research Infrastructures (BMS RIs) participating in CORBEL can stimulate innovation in Europe through providing open access to their key assets, such as resources, technologies, data and knowledge.
We will showcase the Research Infrastructures and discuss novel models of collaboration with industry.


Topics will include:

  • 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?
