The University of Valencia Science Park Foundation and the Court of Arbitration and Mediation of the Chamber of Valencia have organized this free day especially for personnel responsible for research activities and technology transfer
The research and transfer activities in the university environment give rise to a beneficial exchange with the socio-economic environment, favoring an intense collaboration between the university and the business sector. This fruitful contact, nevertheless, can give rise to diverse types of conflicts that even can get to transform into controversies of a great technical and legal complexity.
To increase the chances of resolution, the University of Valencia Science Park Foundation and the Court of Arbitration and Mediation of the Chamber of Valencia have organized a free training day that pursues a double objective. On the one hand, it seeks to offer a general view of the diversity of this type of controversy, as well as a complete overview of the legislative developments that, in the field of industrial and intellectual property, have been undertaken in recent months in Spain. And on the other hand, it seeks to present and value the possibilities offered by the use of mediation and arbitration regarding the management and resolution of this type of litigation, "as flexible, specialized and efficient tools to meet the needs of particularities that present this type of controversy ", underlines the person in charge of the direction of this formation, the professor of Private Interational Law of the University of Valencia and arbitrator of the Court of Arbitration and Mediation of Valencia Guillermo Palao.
The organization of this meeting is part of the events celebrating the 10th anniversary of the inauguration of the Science Park. On the occasion of the event, this innovation ecosystem has developed a program of activities that pursue reflection on the concepts of innovation and knowledge transfer.
The program of the day, which will take place on Tuesday June 18 at the University of Valencia Science Park, has the participation of the Professor of Commercial Law of the Polytechnic University of Valencia Felipe Palau, who will present the framework of legislative developments in industrial and intellectual property, and Lola Blanco, responsible for the contracted I+D section of the University of Valencia, who will delve into "the hidden side of transfer contracts".
