Description

The successful development and commercialisation of technology requires a carefully integrated dispute resolution strategy as a key factor in securing the value of technologies and associated intellectual property (IP) rights developed in research and development (R&D) collaborations and their subsequent commercialisation. This fact sheet provides an overview of World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) alternative dispute resolution (ADR) mechanisms, principles, advantages and case examples to assist small and medium enterprises (SMEs), universities, research centres, researchers and others in making a considered choice on how to resolve future or existing disputes when drafting contract clauses and submission agreements.
