Boosting Pharmaceutical Innovation In The Post-TRIPS Era investigates the concept of innovation and illustrates the crucial role that patent strategies play within processes of pharmaceutical innovation. Drawing on extensive country and company case studies, it identifies the key issues relevant to the revival of local pharmaceutical industries.

Based on an understanding of the post-TRIPS environment and case studies of national innovation strategies, the book specifically addresses an important question - to what extent can lessons from national experiences be transferred to current policy developments for innovation in the pharmaceutical industry in a developing country context? The book sets out a number of recommendations on how this can be achieved. It suggests that it can be done in relation to the key development objectives of promoting the technological and scientific advancement of the country, enhancing local pharmaceutical innovation capacities, adapting patent law to own local realities, providing wide access to medicines and knowledge, safeguarding public health interests, and fostering innovation.

Practitioners and policy planners within the pharmaceutical industry will deem this book invaluable as it addresses a number of practical implications for the promotion of the pharmaceutical industry. It will also be of enormous interest to students, researchers and academics specialising in intellectual property law and policy, science and technology, and the management of technology and innovation.
