‘This study of technology auctions is long overdue. The book provides a better understanding of intermediaries, and their role and impact in markets for technology. Both scholars and managers will find it insightful.’
– Alfonso Gambardella, Bocconi University, Italy
Within the open innovation paradigm, firms need to operate efficiently in markets for technology. This book presents original research on technology transactions, market intermediaries and, specifically, the role of auctions as a novel transaction model for patented technologies.
The book is based on my Ph.D. thesis with the title „Managing technology market transactions can auctions facilitate innovation?“ that is available via the German library association or directly at the library of the Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH).
For publishing the book, financial support from the Hans-Sauer-Stiftung and the Awapatent Foundation for the Promotion of Scientific Research in the Area of Intellectual Property Rights has been provided.
