Global Pharmaceutical Market Topic of Faculty Colloquium at Eureka College
October 26 - 3:15 pm
Eureka College assistant professor of economics Codrin Nedita will present “Intellectual Property Rights Regimes and the Choice of Offshoring in the Global Pharmaceutical Market” at 3:15 p.m. Oct. 26 in the Gammon Room in Melick Library at Eureka College. The free, public presentation is part of the Faculty Colloquium Series.
The presentation will analyze companies’ offshoring decisions for either forming a joint venture with a local firm or entering a contractual partnership, with a special focus on research and development activity. The model that Nedita will present underlines three important factors in a company’s decision: the level of intellectual property rights protection in the destination country, the wage differential between the two countries and the fixed cost associated with a joint venture.
The presentation is the second of five colloquiums by Eureka College faculty members this academic year. Others will be -
“The Wounded Text: Word and Image in a Fourteenth-Century Codex” by assistant professor of English Jessica Barr on Dec. 7.
“Putting War Widows in Their Place? Mass Death, Mourning, and Memory” by assistant professor of history Erika Quinn on Feb. 1.
“A Preliminary Analysis of the Dynamics of an Appalachian Church Community” by English professor Kathy Whitson on April 25.
All of the presentations will be at 3:15 p.m. in the Gammon Room. For more information, contact colloquiums coordinator Scott Hemmenway at
