Englisch (mit einen Vorwort auf Deutsch und Französisch)
In the course of a two-year project, the EPO interviewed
around 150 key players - including critics - from the fields of science,
business, politics, ethics, economics and law, seeking their opinions on how
intellectual property and patenting might evolve over the next fifteen to
twenty years. Four
scenarios - relevant and plausible stories about the future - were
developed in a series of workshops from their answers. The results have been published as a compendium.
