Let's talk innovation policy.
A New Innovators Group in Geneva
Innovation Council brings a voice of experience from the real economy about the enabling policies that will best support innovation and the diffusion of technology and knowledge over the long-term.
We believe that technological innovation and collaboration among innovators will be critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals. We promote inclusive innovation systems, the sharing of know-how on mutually agreed terms, and a fair return for inventive efforts.
Based in Geneva, Switzerland, Innovation Council shares innovators’ perspectives on a range of issues, such as technology diffusion and knowledge-sharing, trade policies, IP protection and enforcement, commercialization of public R&D outcomes, competition rules, open technology standards, and investments in scientific capacity.
