JISC Briefing: Implementation of the Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property and Growth

In May 2011, Professor Ian Hargreaves published his Independent review of IP & growth. The 10 recommendations were broadly accepted in the UK Government’s response (402Kb) issued on 3 August 2011.

On 14 December 2011, Baroness Wilcox, the Minister for Intellectual Property (IP), launched this UK Government consultation seeking evidence to support specific issues associated with the recommendations.

JISC believes that the UK Government consultation is an important opportunity for the UK further and higher education to provide evidence to help inform the development of an IP policy framework which is ‘fit for purpose” in the 21st century.

This Briefing Paper is aimed at those in UK higher and further education institutions with responsibility for strategy, planning, and the management of intellectual property. It aims to support submissions from UK higher and further education institutions by outlining the potential implications that reforms to IP legislation may have for education and research.
