  Aviso: Lecture by Petra Moser (NYU Stern School of Business)

*„Copyrights and Creativity"*

In recent years, there have been increasing demands that publicly funded 
research should not only lead to academic publications, but should also 
be commercially exploitable whenever possible, e.g. through patents and 
licences. On the other hand, it is argued that excessive pressure to 
commercially exploit research hampers innovation and leads to more 
expenditure than revenue for many research institutions. Petra Moser 
will therefore address the question of whether commercial exploitation 
of research is more likely to be promoted or hindered, and what a 
fertile connection might look like.

Thus the IST Austria and the Austrian Science Fund are pleased to 
announce the lecture "Copyrights and Creativity" by Petra Moser on 13th 
December in Vienna, which is part of a series on "New Trends in 
Schoolarly Communication".

*Thursday, 13th December 2018, 6 pm

Sensengasse 1, 1090 Vienna
registrations via e-mail to einladung(at)fwf.ac.at

Petra Moser is an Associate Professor of Economics at the NYU Stern 
School of Business <http://www.stern.nyu.edu/>. Her research combines 
methods from economic history and applied microeconomics to examine the 
determinants of creativity and innovation. Petra Moser studies the 
behavior of inventors, artists, and writers from the 19th century to 
today to figure out what makes people creative, what encourages firms to 
take the risks that are inherent in innovation, and what types of 
institutions encourage people to do their best work.

Her current book project "Patents and Pirates" draws on records of 19th 
century world fairs to examine how the US and Europe used piracy to 
catch up to the technology frontier.

/This lecture is part of a series on "New Trends in Scholarly 
Communication" initiated by IST Austria and Austrian Science Fund (FWF)./
