The End of Innovation As We Know It, with Prof. Richard Gold.

[En anglais seulement] Innovation has been a major – perhaps the major – force in increasing wealth and well-being over the last centuries. Today, we benefit from record levels of health, safety, and prosperity and the lowest levels of threat, terrorism and crime not only at home but around the world. Nevertheless, the costs of maintaining the innovation are increasing, not only exponentially but super-exponentially. Have we reached the point at which the resources to maintain the system become unsustainable? There are signs that this point is approaching: declining life expectancy in the US and UK, flat innovation productivity despite vast increases in resources, and lower prosperity resulting from innovation. If we are reaching this point, the only way out is to innovate how we innovate. In this session, we will explore this idea and possible ways to meet this challenge.

Richard Gold is a James McGill Professor, and the founding Director of the CIPP. He teaches in the areas of domestic, international and comparative intellectual property and innovation policy. His research focuses on the life sciences.
