Dr Frank Tietze is going to share his recent research work and thoughts with us. Frank is lecturer in technology and innovation management within the Centre for Technology Management (CTM) at the IfM. He is building up a research group that focuses on the role of IP and its management among the elements of the ISAEP framework (identification, selection, acquisition, exploitation and protection) for technology development and innovation.

“As research expands our understanding of the world it contributes to the emergence of new technologies. Emerging technologies are characterized by five elements: (i) radical novelty, (ii) relatively fast growth, (iii) coherence, (iv) prominent impact, and (v) uncertainty and ambiguity. When new, potentially path- and ground-breaking technologies emerge, manufacturing firms face a number of challenges. The talk focuses on the IP associated challenges that different stakeholders face along the emergence of new and potential game-changing technologies. The talk will substantiate that claim and examine a selected number of situations along the emergence path where intellectual property (IP) decision making and management is of particular relevance. For instance, when scale-up centres bring together players with a major interest in an emerging technology, its business model must clearly govern the allocation of jointly developed IP, particularly if scale-up partners compete. Any investor being asked to provide funding for a scale-up centre will most likely question the centre‚Äôs IP model. The buns talk will discuss key IP challenges as part of the process to shape a future IP research agenda within the CTM and IfM. Come along to learn more and share your thoughts!”
