Emerging countries continue to play an increasing role in global innovation through patenting performance, general intellectual property (IP) awareness and improved innovation ability. Many new policies and regulations have been issued by the central governments of these countries to facilitate innovation and technology transfer. For example, China recently passed legislation similar to the United States’ Bayh-Dole Act. This landmark legislation should lead to future explosive growth in China’s technology transfer and is a great opportunity for international cooperation. Cooperation is crucial for emerging economies to learn from countries with strongly developed innovation, such as the United States, the European Union and Japan. Looking closely at each country’s technology transfer field, we will travel from Hong Kong to mainland China, with a peek into their new legislation, then delve further into Asia, including Korea and Japan, making comparisons as we go. Bringing together technology transfer experts from emerging and innovation developed countries, this session will discuss opportunities for cooperation and growth.
