Seeking Experts on Intellectual Property and Personnel Management

CRDF Global is seeking subject matter experts on topics related to the security of intellectual property and personnel management to develop and deliver presentations at a future workshop engagement with academia from Kenya, Ethiopia, and Nigeria.  

The SME will create a presentation to provide participants with an advanced understanding of the threats from illicit technology transfer as well as the active role that academics as individuals and institutions can adopt to mitigate this risk. STEM universities are hubs of innovation, creation, and development and their research is thus also at risk of being misused or adopted without permission. The most proactive ways of mitigating this risk include developing personnel management best practices within an academic environment and research partnerships as well as raising awareness amongst the researchers who have the most to lose.
