This panel will discuss initiatives to stimulate both domestic and international innovation across all biotechnology sectors. The Directors will also discuss political and social considerations when leveraging the patent system to foster biotechnology innovation. Comparing practices across markets should provide attendees with a better understanding of both the opportunities and challenges they may face in each of these markets.
