Video interview: NASA talks space and IP


In a video interview that was conducted at the 2016 BIO International Convention last week, LSIPR spoke to Crawford Jones, ISS media specialist from NASA, and Michael Roberts, deputy chief scientist from partner organisation CASIS, about using space as an environment for research as well as NASA’s relationship with intellectual property. 

In the interview, Jones says: “We travel around the country and talk to different industries about how they can utilise research platforms onboard the international space station."

Roberts adds:"There are laws that prevent NASA from engaging with the industry in certain ways, so essentially as a non-profit organisation, CASIS can engage with the commercial community in creative ways in partnerships to enable access to that environment."
