Three leading U.S. research universities have joined together to spur rapid transfer of available technologies to combat COVID-19. Stanford, MIT and Harvard have developed a COVID-19 Technology Access Framework designed to quickly utilize available technologies for preventing, diagnosing, and treating COVID-19 infection during the pandemic. The three original institutions have committed to a set of guidelines around patenting and licensing strategies to facilitate rapid global access, and several other institutions have also joined in their adoption of the framework since its release.
The Government-University-Industry Research Roundtable (GUIRR) of the National Science Academies of Science, Engineering and Medicine will hold a free webinar on the new Framework on Wednesday, April 29, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. ET. The presenter will be Karin Immergluck, the Executive Director of Stanford University’s Office of Technology Licensing.
