Propriété Intellectuelle, Communs et Exclusivité



Version française


The new issues of shared access and innovation


International  Seminar  -  Paris, 25-26 avril 2013,  Hôtel Novotel Bercy


This seminar will present for discussion the results of three years of surveys and research carried out within the framework of the PROPICE project (Intellectual Property, Commons and Exclusivity), sponsored by the French National Research Agency. By combining historical and empirical studies in multiple fields (ICT, biotech, pharmaceuticals, cultural goods, etc.) with economic and legal approaches, the research carried out in PROPICE is intended to help portray the promises and difficulties inherent in the construction of commons as alternatives to the implementation of exclusive IPR.

The PROPICE project, under the scientific direction of Benjamin Coriat, is a research programme of the Labex (LABoratory of EXcellence) SITES: Science Innovation et Technique en Société. It brings together three partners:
   • The CEPN: Centre d'Economie de Paris Nord (UMR CNRS 7234) from the University of Paris 13, (Sorbonne Paris Cité); PROPICE team directed by B. Coriat
   • The CRDST: Centre de Recherche sur le Droit des Sciences et des Techniques from the University of Paris 1; PROPICE team directed by C. Noiville
   • The SESSTIM (UMR INSERM/IRD) from the University of Aix-Marseille; PROPICE team directed by F. Orsi
and two associated research centres:
   • The CECOGI: Centre d'Etudes sur la Coopération Juridique Internationale, from the University of Poitiers ; PROPICE team directed by Marie Cornu
   • The IRJS: Institut de Recherche Juridique de la Sorbonne from the University of Paris 1, PROPICE team directed by Judith Rochfeld.
