RESEARCH

Research activities at CIP are focused on the paradigm shift from an industrial to a knowledge economy. CIP Research investigates the structural transformation of industry, universities, and society through an interdisciplinary approach involving scholars and experts in management, economics, law, technology, sociology, and political science. A central theme is the role of intellectual assets, property, and capital in the formation of wealth and welfare in what we term the (control of) knowledge economy.


 

Research and Utilization – IP and the Utilization of Academic Research

Ulf Petrusson’s comprehensive manual on IP and the utilization of academic research, Research and Utilization, has just been published in English. It is focused on the role of intellectual asset/property management to facilitate the utilization of academic research and is based on research performed in relation between CIP and Institute for Innovation and Social Change. The goal is to promote an executable framework for analysis of research results and design of utilization strategies, and the framework has been deployed in the development of the innovation system at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, as well as in the graduate courses at Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship.

IP and Open Innovation in Telecommunication Standards (in collaboration with Ericsson)

Bowman Heiden and Jens Andreasson have published the third article in a series on IP and open innovation in telecommunication standards, “Reevaluating Patent Damages in the Knowledge Economy: The Intellectual Value Chain and the Royalty Base for Standard-Essential Patents” in Criterion J. on Innovation.

The research project focuses on the role intellectual property plays in the sustainable development of open innovation platforms in the knowledge economy, in particular, the context of open standards in the telecommunication industry.
