How are knowledge, information, and other shared intellectual resources governed?

Building upon the successful 2012 global thematic IASC conference on knowledge commons, this 2nd conference aims to take stock of the latest developments in the interdisciplinary study of knowledge commons. The conference will seek to better understand how knowledge commons work, where they come from, what contributes to their durability and effectiveness, and what undermines them. This year’s program will highlight knowledge commons in the fields of medicine and the environment by devoting special paper tracks and policy sessions to those topics.

The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law & Policy at NYU School of Law sponsors interdisciplinary work in the area of innovation law and policy. It draws together legal scholars and practitioners, economists, historians, culturalists, social scientists, and representatives of the innovation industries to examine questions on allocating global resources to creative activities; to study the legal regimes and cultural forces that influence innovation; to explore methods for optimizing the exploitation of intellectual products; and to search for new ways to facilitate the transfer of technology from creator to end-user, across fields, and among nations.
