What will intellectual asset management look like in the new CGIAR?
As yet we don’t know. But we do know that proper IP management is crucial to facilitate the exchange of CGIAR outputs as well as to support trust in collaborations, so it will not be ignored. To inform the decisions that the new Consortium Office will be taking in the coming months, DGIS commissioned a review of our unit, and requested that it incorporate an in-depth look at IP management in agricultural development as a whole. The result is one of the most comprehensive documents written on this topic.
But, the job is not done yet. Although the review incorporates the views of many, we would like to initiate a broader discussion on IP and A4D (agriculture for development). To this end, we have set up a public consultation process online. All comments will be compiled and officially added to the report, we hope for use by the agricultural development community at-large.
