“Science-based innovation is built upon research and discovery. However, the technological discovery is not the innovation itself, but requires ' translation'," says Dr. Alan Bennett, Executive Director of the University of California-Davis in Chile (UC Davis Chile). Because of this, in 2011 PIPRA (Public Intellectual Property Resource for Agriculture), an institution co-founded by Dr. Bennett, in conjunction with the School of Law at UC Davis began to offer the “Licensing Academy: Intellectual Property and Technology Commercialization”™ , a tool to achieve this ‘translation’.
