|Title:||WTO and IPR: Implications for R&D Management*|
|Authors:||Gupta, V K|
|Abstract:||The World Trade Organization (WTO) and the associated agreements, which guide its role and functions, have put in place a framework for international initiatives which in the long run aim at free trade and removal of trade barriers. The agreements on trade-related aspects of intellectual property, trade in services, subsidies and countervailing measures, technical barriers to trade, and dispute settlement are of particular concern to R&D. The management of R&D would need to understand the issues in implementing these agreements and evolve a considered response in dealing with them. The paper examines some of these issues and considers their implications for R&D management.|
