Futures of innovation and intellectual property regulation in 2040


This policy brief explores how changes in several dimensions of innovation might influence IP regimes, and their impacts on society in the future. Since IP is a global phenomenon, we have no specific geographical focus, but look toward IP regimes in 2040. However, our policy implications are developed especially from the point of view of the European research and innovation policy. Across the scenarios, the coordination between national, particularly EU, and international IPR initiatives emerges as a relevant policy challenge.
