Chapter Summary

This chapter highlights the social motivations that play a role in the complex non-monetary incentive mechanisms that drive science and innovation in the research commons. It contributes to better global regulation of the scientific research commons in the specific context of the obligations under the Nagoya Protocol on access and benefit-sharing (ABS). The chapter presents the survey on access and use patterns in the global scientific research commons, by focusing on the particular case of globally networked public collections of genetic resources. It also analyses how to create the best possible institutional fit with the access and use patterns highlighted through the surveys, by discussing respectively a set of institutional and legal options for implementing the Nagoya Protocol in the scientific research commons.

Keywords:access and benefit-sharing (ABS); access and use patterns; genetic resources; global scientific research commons; Nagoya Protocol
