Visit from Oliver Fryer, media and entertainment lawyer

On the 5th of October students studying the Intellectual Property Strategies course at SSIE and CSE Oliver Fryer, media and entertainment lawyer who has worked for both Disney and Sega, and today is one of the foremost legal counsellors in the TV production industry in London. Mr. Fryer gave the students an insight to the IP and business related challenges that creative industries face, and ended the lecture with career advice for those interested in working in the entertainment business.

Following the morning lecture, Mr. Fryer held an inspiration seminar for the bachelor students at the law school, where he gave them his input on the legal work in media and entertainment law.

We thank Mr. Fryer for his visit and hope to see him in London or Gothenburg soon again!

Thought Leaders shaping the way forward

In 2014 CIP constituted a new advisory board in collaboration with Intellectual Property of Norway (IPiN). Consisting of a Global Council and Nordic Council, the advisory board includes many of the world’s leading voices in the field of IP and business strategy in combination with key decision makers from industry and policy actors in the Nordic region.

As CIP’s vision is to be a thought leader in the development of the knowledge economy, we are honored to have such a creative and dedicated group of advisor shaping the way forward.

Follow this link for more information on the CIP advisory board, and make sure to sign up for the newsletter to be updated on the latest entrepreneurial activities of our thought leaders.

CIP was founded as a joint initiative with industry, and we would like to announce the continued support of our industry partners: Ericsson, Philips, Nokia, PARC, SKF, and Volvo. Thank you for your commitment to the mission of transforming knowledge into wealth and welfare for the benefit of society.

ipin CIP would also like to congratulate our partners at Intellectual Property of Norway (IPiN) on their first successful year of operation.

ICM Master Program – A unique action-based experience

Competitive advantage in the knowledge economy is not only about the creation of knowledge, but the control of knowledge as intellectual property. Many leading industries from ICT to pharma to brand-based business and even open source are built on business models completely dependent on the execution of IP-based business strategies.

The ICM program coordinated by CIP is an interdisciplinary master level education combining students from engineering, law, and business into a unique action-based experience, preparing future leaders for the rigors of competition in the knowledge economy.

Bridging the gap with executive education

As industry transforms to knowledge-based business models, the knowledge gap at the interface of intellectual property and business strategy becomes a bottleneck in achieving competitive advantage. Bridging this gap requires business and technology managers to understand the strategic role of intellectual property as well as IP managers to understand how intellectual property creates business value.

CIP faculty participates in two programs designed to tackle this challenge from both directions.

For IP managers/professionals: The Business of Intellectual Property

For Business/Technology Managers: Executive MBA

Understanding value and control in Knowledge-Based Business

Modern knowledge-based business models are dependent on the control of knowledge, hence, intellectual property. The CIP research program on Knowledge-Based Business is focused on understanding the link between between value and control in relation to a firm’s strategic intellectual assets and positions. Key areas of research include the development of models and tools concerning:

  • Transformation from a material to and intellectual value chain
  • Competitive positioning on technology vs. product markets
  • Open innovation platforms

University Innovation Systems

At a core institution in the development and transfer of knowledge, the role of the university is also under transformation in the knowledge economy. CIP research into University Innovation Systems focuses on the development of the complete academic environment that combines education, research, and innovation. Key areas of research include:

  • Utilizations models for academic research
  • Capabilities and governance mechanisms for the systemic management of research results
  • Knowledge management framework for the operational evaluation and management of research results

IP and Innovation

Intellectual property from a traditional industrial perspective was predominantly designed to block others, but this is now changing. The CIP research program on Intellectual Property and Innovation explores the dynamic role of intellectual assets, property and capital as building blocks to design innovations, markets, and ventures. Key areas of research include:

  • IP in creative industries
  • IP as a financial instrument
  • IP at the interface of science
