Partnering for Progress

Some of the most important technological and agricultural research happening right now is a result of public-private partnerships, or PPPs, which allow expertise, funding and risk to be shared between private-sector companies and public agencies.

Because of the many stakeholders and variables involved, PPPs can be complex to organize and execute. However, combining the strengths of each party in this way can provide the public with better services, innovations and solutions for our future. Intellectual property (IP) is a crucial tool for encouraging more PPPs, since without it the results of these projects would not necessarily be protected and used responsibly.
