    Abstract

    Book synopsis: This seminar will bring out latest thinking on the social and economic value of IP (intellectual property). Discussion will focus on how a comprehensive strategy for IP could underpin the UK's position as a competitive leader in the global economy. This is emerging as a major policy focus for the new Parliament, with research being undertaken by the Intellectual Property Office and the Council for Science and Technology, which highlights the increasing emphasis placed on the role of government and business to stimulate innovation and generate growth. Planned sessions consider latest thinking on what more can be done to support knowledge-intensive industries - including pharmaceuticals, green technologies and the creative industries - and how Intellectual Property Rights can be used to encourage innovation and harness technological advances. Discussion will also address the additional benefits an increased emphasis on research and development can bring and the important role of IP in wider society.
