Forskning och Nytta – IP and the Utilization of Academic Research

Ulf Petrusson’s comprehensive manual on IP and the utilization of academic research, Forskning och Nytta, has just been published. It is focused on the role of intellectual asset/property management to facilitate the utilization of academic research and is based on research performed in relation between CIP and Institute for Innovation and Social Change. The goal is to promote an executable framework for analysis of research results and design of utilization strategies, and the framework has been deployed in the development of the innovation system at University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, as well as in the graduate courses at Sahlgrenska School of Innovation and Entrepreneurship and Chalmers School of Entrepreneurship.
