Innovation and Intellectual Property Management (IIPM) Laboratory

Within the context of our GOCIA project (Governing Climate Innovation from Africa), it was an honour to host Prof. Caroline Ncube at King's College, Cambridge for a talk on "African perspectives on governing Science, Technology and Innovation to advance the SDGs" during which she introduced her new book, the "Elgar Companion to Intellectual Property and the Sustainable Development Goals" co-edited by Bita Amani and Matthew Rimmer. The book is an excellent compilation of works that discusses the link between IP and each of the 17 SDGs. 

Caroline B. Ncube is a Cambridge alumni having completed her LLM studies at the Law Faculty in 2000. She is Professor and the DSI/NRF SARChI Research Chair in Intellectual Property, Innovation and Development, Department of Commercial Law at the University of Cape Town (South Africa) and also a steering group member of Open Air, which is our partner within the GOCIA project.
