Massive thanks to Jeremiah Chan, Legal Director for Global Patents at Google for joining us today live on video from the Silicon Valley in the fourth lecture of the Innovation & Strategic Management of Intellectual Property module .
Very pleased to see the launch of the new eight-week course on „Innovation and Strategic management of Intellectual Property“ (4E1) on Wednesday this week. The course is taught at the University’s Department of Engineering attended by approximately 60 undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate / PhD students from different programmes. The course is mandatory for the IfM’s MPhil ISMM programme (Industrial Systems, Manufacture and Management) as part of this year’s redesigned curriculum.
The IP management module covers topics such as protection, enforcement and risk management, markets for technology and licensing, open innovation and appropriation strategies, but as well as insights into how firms organize for effective IP management and IP analytics for technology intelligence.
The course is taught by Dr Frank Tietze, head of the Innovation and IP Management (IIPM) research group, based within the Centre for Technology Management, Institute for Manufacturing. The module is supported by guest speakers from the UKIPO and EPO as well as senior IP managers from ARM, Google and ThyssenKrupp.

We are very excited about our new endeavour. Today we launched a brand new, full term, eight-week Intellectual Property Management module for engineering students at Cambridge University. As far as I know this is the first time ever that a complete module is dedicated to IP management at Cambridge for non-law students. We look forward to seven more exciting weeks and lectures with fantastic guest speakers from Google, ThyssenKrupp, Aistemos, the European Patent Office and ARM.
Professor Tim Minshall, the inaugural Dr John C Taylor Professor of Innovation, has become has become the new Head of the IfM, taking over from Professor Andy Neely.

Some preliminary information is already online here. The group will kick-off with a first seminar on 18 October from 12:00-14:00 on „How open is open IP?“.
World Patent Information just published our paper about best-pratices of IP management teaching based on a workshop we ran in Cambridge in September 2016. Download the full paper here.
Today, Heiner Lütjen from Kiel University, Chair of Technology Management and currently CTM visitor gave a talk on „How energy utilities harness their ecosystem for servitization„. The project builds on our recently published paper on service transitions of German energy utilities.
Seems to be an interesting event! Examiners from the EPO will be visiting Cambridge this Friday to give a presentation on what they do and how they do it but also to provide an opportunity for academics and companies to ask questions about general or specific issues they may have about patent filing, prosecution and maintenance.
