Intellectual assets, innovation, growth and value creation and the role of new digital technologies and digital property
This international and collaborative project focuses on IP rights and their management with emphasis on digital property, such as data and data driven businesses and industries.
The project is funded by Vinnova, the Swedish agency for innovation system research and involves colleagues from Chalmers University of Technology (e.g. Ove Granstrand and Marcus Holgersson), the University of Gothenburg (e.g. Marueen McKelvey) and Uppsala University (e.g. Bengt Domeij).
The aim of this research project is to increase our managerial, economic, legal and technological (MELT) knowledge about:
- the theoretical and empirical relations between the 5 key factors: R&D, intellectual assets (IAs), innovations, growth and societal value creation
- how digital technologies interact with these relations.
We are particularly involved work packages focusing on patent information analysis and the role and design of IP rights for data based industries. The project runs for two years starting in February 2018.
