Intel Grants Free Access to its Intellectual Property to Covid19 Researchers and Scientists

This blog was published on behalf of Steven Rodgers, executive vice president and general counsel of Intel Corporation. 


Earlier today, Intel pledged an additional $50 million to our Covid19 efforts, focused on driving the technology, expertise and resources the world needs to defeat this terrible pandemic.  But scientists and researchers need more; they also need the freedom to make Covid19 innovations and inventions without the threat of being sued by intellectual property owners.  For that reason, in addition to this morning’s $50 million pledge, we are also giving Covid19 scientists and researchers free access to Intel’s vast worldwide intellectual property portfolio – one of the world’s largest – in the hope and belief that making this intellectual property freely available to them will save lives.

Intel is proud to join the Open COVID Pledge as a founding sponsor.  On behalf of Intel employees around the world, and especially our inventors who have worked so hard to create Intel’s intellectual property, we encourage intellectual property holders around the world to join us in this pledge.  Innovation and protecting innovation are at the heart of everything we do at Intel.  During this pandemic, Intel employees have continued to work tirelessly to produce products that keep the Internet running, and that allow us to work and school our children from home, medical professionals to care for their patients, and governments to plan and respond.  We will continue to invent – and protect – our intellectual property, but we offer it freely to those working to protect people from this pandemic.

  1. Hi My name is Dylan. I’m working in Intel at the moment, but in the canteen. I have relevant experience in medical science, because I was working in the Institute of public health at molecular genetic department in my country. I studied Biotechnology Engineering in Chile and I’m looking for some oportunity here in Ireland. So, if you have some information, please contact me.

  2. How Intel confirms that they open source their IPs when nothing of that sort is listed anywhere in the site ??
    & also it would take a considerable amount of time to implement those IPs single-handedly..
    what other ready-made PCB or circuit solutions there for early researchers in Covid identification & possible remedy ??
    pls mention with web links and details…

  3. Having 2 relatives who work at Intel this makes me extremely proud. Extremely generous! Good for you Intel! Hope everyone gets on board.
