Visit to Qatar
Beneblog: Technology Meets Society
JUNE 1, 2010
after my first visit to the country of Qatar. The government of Qatar hosted the conference, and underwrote travel and accommodation. Another Schwab social entrepreneur, Richard Jefferson of Australia-based CAMBIA, spoke on behalf of greater transparency in patent databases as a crucial start in realizing greater access to the knowledge embedded in patents. I was glad when they agreed to host me: it turns out that Sunday in Qatar is the first day of the work week.
