Welcome back Leo from @turinginst @IfMCambridge @Cambridge_Eng @IIPMcambridge

Good to see you back the other day at the IfM from your secondment to The Alan Turing Institute. This is where Leo is now based for the next year to further boost his skills to apply AI, machine and deep learning to patent data. We look forward to hearing how the briliant minds you meet in London help you with cracking on and moving the research frontier.

Welcome to Ove Granstrand, the new Leverhulme Trust visiting professor @chalmersuniv @IIPMcambridge @IfMCambridge @CambridgeEng @LeverhulmeTrust

A very warm welcome to Ove Granstrand from Chalmers University of Technology in Sweden as the new Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor to the IfM, Cambridge University Engineering Department and CTM, particularly our IIPM research group.

We very much are looking ahead to an inspiring year with Ove, uncountable and invaluable conversations across engineering and management domains, most likely with a some kind of focus on IP

We are very much looking forward to learn how we can better intregrate management, economics, law and technology (MELT) into our IP research and teaching. We are delighted to have you onboard.

1m€ Belmont Forum consortia grant for @IIPMcambridge research team @ifmCambridge @Cambridge_Eng @ESRC

Press release: http://www.belmontforum.org/news/twelve-transnational-projects-to-receive-11-5-million-euros-for-research-on-transformations-to-sustainability/

IPACSTWe 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.

Ove Granstrand to become Leverhulme Trust funded visiting professor at CTM @IIPMcambridge @IfMCambridge @Cambridge_Eng

We are extremely pleased for having been selected to received funding from the @LeverhulmeTrust for a visiting professorship. Ove Granstrand, one of Europe’s leading interdisciplinary expert in IP research will be visiting the IIPM research group at CTM and the University of Cambridge Department of Engineering in the coming academic year.

Launch of new IIPM website

We are very pleased to announce the launch of the new website for the Innovation and Intellectual Property Management (IIPM) research group. The IIPM group is an integral part of the Centre for Technology Management based at the Institute for Manufacturing, Department of Engineering, University of Cambridge.

Our new website provides insights into our ongoing and past research, publications, industrial engagement and teaching activities. More details are available at: www.ifm.eng.cam.ac.uk/research/innovation-and-ip-management/

For engineering students the University of Cambridge launches new course on Innovation and Strategic management of Intellectual Property

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.
