Technology Transfer

Companies often rely on external sources of knowledge in open-innovation processes. We focus on the junction between businesses and public research institutions. We analyze the management and impact of university-industry projects and alliance portfolios, and the success factors of hospital-industry collaborations regarding clinical studies. A further point of interest is Intellectual Property Management (e.g., patents, portfolio assessment, IP-strategies, licensing).

Current Projects in this core research area are:

MELT - Management, Economics and IP Law of Open Distributed Innovation

Success Factors of Industry-UniversityPprojects

Excavating the Role of NPEs in the Innovation Process

Performance Effects of University Industry Collaboration

PRAKOS - Forschungsprojekt zu Kollaborativen Problemlösungsstrategien und Innovationsaktivitäten zur Bewältigung von Großschadenslagen
