The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and PolicyThe Engelberg Center is a worldwide resource for practical information on intellectual property law
The Engelberg Center on Innovation Law and Policy was created to sponsor interdisciplinary work in the general area of innovation law and policy. It draws together legal scholars and practitioners, economists, historians, culturalists, social scientists, and representatives of the innovation industries to examine questions on allocating global resources to creative activities, to study the legal regimes and cultural forces that influence innovation, to explore methods for optimizing the exploitation of intellectual products, and to search for new ways to facilitate the transfer of technology from creator to end-user, across fields, and among nations.
The Engelberg Center sponsors the Information Law Institute, which provides an academic center for studying the effects of contemporary choices concerning the legal rules affecting the production, manipulation, storage, and dissemination of, and access to, information in the digitally networked society.
The Engelberg Center is cooperating with the Institute for International Law and Justice on its Global Administrative Law Project. Professors Katherine Strandburg and Rochelle Dreyfuss participated in the Cape Town Global Administrative Law Conference and Professor Dreyfuss also took part in the Beijing GAL Workshop in Tsinghua University and the New Delhi Global Administrative Law Conference. The Engelberg Center is currently co-sponsoring a GAL project under the direction of Professors Rochelle Dreyfuss and César Rodríguez-Garavito, Director of the Global Justice and Human Rights Program at the University of Los Andes, Colombia on global regulation of intellectual property rights and its impact on access to medicine in South America.
