Do you have questions about data or software sharing?



On Friday, November 4, Technology Transfer & Business Development and the Data Jamboree are co-hosting a panel presentation and round-table discussion on sharing and securing data and software through open source and creative commons licensing.  OHSU community members will learn about the importance of securing rights, as well the ways in which data and software can be licensed to meet researcher and community goals.

Panelists include:

  • Tammy Buist, VP and Chief Business Development Officer, Seattle’s Cancer Research & Biostatistics Institute
  • Brad Biddle, Owner, Biddle Law LLP
  • Frank Curci, Partner, Ater Wynne LLP

The presentations will be followed by two round-table discussions led by OHSU researchers Drs. Kemal Sonmez, Melissa Haendel, and Steven Bedrick.  The round tables will explore goals and issues related to intellectual property, research aims, and scientific communication through the lens of project case studies.  Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions and share their ideas about what it means and how to share data and software openly and responsibly.

All OHSU faculty, students, and staff are welcome!  Food and drink will be served.
