We hope you will join us for the virtual 2021 OHE Annual Lecture with Professor Margaret Kyle on Thursday, October 14th at 13:00-15:00
Professor Kyle will answer the critical question “Do patents work?” focusing on evidence from pharmaceutical innovation.
Register for free:
Patents, once the “no brainer” of the innovation model, are being questioned. The exceptional circumstances of COVID-19 revived the controversy around patents of pharmaceutical products. It has been suggested that the Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) agreement should be waived to provide quick access to COVID-19 to low- and middle-income countries. Those opposing the waiver argued that there was no guarantee that this approach would solve the manufacturing shortage and distribution bottlenecks while jeopardising future innovation.
In the 2022 OHE Annual Lecture, Professor Kyle will describe the empirical evidence on the effectiveness of patents in the pharmaceutical sector. Specifically, she will present evidence on the rate and direction of innovation linked to patents in pharma. Because they remain a contentious tool in innovation policy, as seen in the current debate over the proposed patent waiver for COVID vaccines, she will also discuss the empirical evidence concerning alternatives to patents, such as prizes and government grants.
