The Summit on the Global Agenda is an annual global brainstorming event that brings together members of the World Economic Forum’s Network of Global Agenda Councils.

Over 700 members of the Network of Global Agenda will gather to discuss over 70 areas with global experts from over 80 countries.

During the two day gathering, the WEF Global Agenda Council for IP focuses on several areas, including IP and Creative Content, and IP policy to support growth and development.

It was the Global Agenda Council on IP that incubated the Global Responsibility Licensing Toolkit, as developed by Global Access in Action.

Jim will be in close company while in Abu Dhabi; several attendees of the Summit are also participating in Invent for Humanity and the LESI Global Technology Impact Forum, including Anthony Taubman from WTO, James Moody from CSIRO, and Sara Boettiger from GATD.

Global Access to Technology for Development (GATD) is one of Invent for Humanity’s Ecosystem for Impact partners. GATD works to impact the lives of the global poor through better applications of technology.

Technology is central to our global capacity to address the major problems we face today – from climate change to global poverty.
