    Solving the World's Imminent Problems with Innovative Science
    The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Allen Institute for Brain Science, and the Infectious Disease Research Institute are all Seattle-based non-profit organizations that fund, manage and engage in life sciences research. Together and individually they represent organizations that make investments in basic science, clinical trials and seeing new products brought to market ultimately. Necessarily, intellectual property and licensing play a role in forming the collaborations and managing the work of these organizations. 

    The goal of this plenary session is to explain the work of these organizations, their overall objectives and the role that licensing plays. And given that they are all non-profit entities, the panel will explore the implications of licensing involving commercial actors to achieve charitable outcomes.

    Erik Iverson, Executive Vice President of Business Development and External Affairs, Infectious Disease Research Institute
    Maja Larson, General Counsel, Allen Institute for Brain Science

    Hello Kitty as a Global Licensing & Marketing Phenomenon
    Sanrio is Japan's leading company in global licensing with products available in over 109 countries. Sanrio's success has been drawing a lot of attention, so much so that it was featured in a special documentary aired in May of 2012 by Japanese public broadcaster NHK. A key figure involved in this success is Ray Hatoyama, who took the company's Hello Kitty brand worldwide, and he will speak about his experiences. His talk will cover themes such as Sanrio's focus on globalizing its business in recent years, the localization of its operations worldwide, and the strong growth in global licensing.

    Ray Hatoyama, Vice Chairman, Sanrio
