COVID-19 Technology Access Framework
A technology licensing framework has been developed by Stanford University, Harvard University, and the Massaschusetts Institute of Technology. To address the global COVID-19 pandemic, these three institutions developed and are implementing technology transfer strategies to allow for and incentivize rapid utilization of available technologies that may be useful for preventing, diagnosing, and treating COVID-19 infection during the pandemic. The three original institutions have committed to a set of guidelines around patenting and licensing strategies to facilitate rapid global access, and several other institutions have also joined in their adoption of the framework since its release.
