EMBO reports: Responsibility and intellectual property in synthetic biology
As part of their collaboration with SYNENERGENE, the iGEM 2014 team of Valencia Biocampus worked on questions of intelectual property in synthetic biology. In an extension of this collaboration, a proposal for using Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) as a basic framework for intellectual property (IP) decisions and the development of IP schemes in synthetic biology has been put forward in EMBO reports, online (August 12, 2015). In particular, the authors strived to elucidate whether IP schemes and the RRI concept could be mutually beneficial to foster innovations in synthetic biology, which may be required to provide solutions to the grand societal challenges.
