Intellectual Property: New Opportunities for Young Entrepreneurs
5 June 2021

2021 has been designated the Year of Science and Technology in Russia. Accordingly, this session will feature a discussion between young inventors, scientists and experts, who will examine the challenges facing the high-tech sector. There is a growing demand for knowledge-intensive and invention-driven projects. Intellectual property is also growing in importance, with new, widely available IP commercialization models emerging. The government and professional community need to respond to these and other factors in order to attract young people to science and innovation on a large scale. An invention provides a good basis for a new business, and should therefore be viewed as an exciting new pursuit, as well as a promising endeavour for young entrepreneurs. What should the government, society and the commercial sector do to attract young people to science and innovation? Can people be taught to invent? Why are patents needed, and what are the steps to receiving one? What amendments need to be made to the legal and regulatory framework to encourage more people from a wider range of backgrounds to become inventors?
