On September the 12th, Alberto presented at the NetVal Summer School in Bertinoro.
NetVal (LINK A NETVAL QUA) is the largest organization in Italy for technology transfer managers. Each year Italian professionals meet in a lovely location to share best practices, network with colleagues and hear what’s new about innovation management.
This year, the school focused on the topic of intellectual property. Quite a pivotal topic for Alberto’s research!
With the great assistance of Elena Casprini, Alberto discussed about Open Innovation and intellectual property. Do patents hinder innovation? Yes indeed according to Eric Von Hippel! Not at all, if we hear from Henry Chesbrough and David Teece..
