Q&A will take part at the end of the discussion

Ethics laws have been written in such a way as to place private interests as inherently at odds with the interests of government. This antiquated notion of adversaries fails to reconcile with the reality of government’s crucial role as a partner in innovation. From sponsored research at higher education institutions and teaching hospitals to statutory corporations and authorities created for the purposes of facilitating economic development in different geographic or economic sectors, it is now an unassailable premise that government and private interests are more aligned than ever before.

This panel of experts will discuss the different structures used in public-private partnerships and their differing objectives; how commercialization and privatization of intellectual property is used as a recruitment tool in the public sector; the roles played by specific governmental organizations in joint ventures and how ethics fits within larger compliance regimes; how to define, identify, and mitigate conflicts of interest; and, how participating entities and other regulators, e.g., JCOPE, can collaborate, avoid duplicative efforts, and promote research, development and innovation while protecting the integrity of the venture under existing ethics laws and rules.
