We are excited that our proposal was selected to receive funding from the Belmont Forum, a pan-international social science research body. The project focuses on studying how IP models can help to accelerate sustainability transitions, particularly analysing sustainable business models for clean energy and the circular economy.
Starting in October, the IPACST project will run for three years. Project partners include:
Total projects funds are about 1m€. UK funds for the project come from the Global Challenges Research Funds, respectively the ESRC. The project is among 12 selected consortia projects out of 155 eligible proposals.
We will soon be looking to recruit a postdoc, preferably with research expertise in IP and licensing, but also sustainable innovation and the circular economy.
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.
Come along to today’s IfM briefing day if you like to learn more about the research in our Innovation and IP research group (IIPM). This will be covered as part of the CTM talk on „Effective technology and innovation management“ from 12:00 – 12:30. Further details here.
