Evolving properties of intellectual capitalism

Patents and Innovations for Growth and Welfare

Ove Granstrand

Intellectual capitalism is evolving, driving and driven by technological innovations and various forms of entrepreneruship. The purpose of this eagerly anticipated book is to analyze the linkages between R & D, patents, innovations, entrepreneurship and growth. Based on a large array of national empirical and policy studies, it elaborates on a comprehensive range of innovation and IP issues that are pertinent not only to Europe but to the world as a whole. These issues include the role of patents and licensing in the governance of technology and innovation, and the various uses and abuses of patents. It further elaborates on new IP phenomena in an increasingly patent-intensive world with patent-rich multinationals and patent-savvy new entrants from Asia. In a world facing challenges that call for innovative responses, the book contains a set of valuable policy recommendations for strengthening innovativeness for economic growth and ultimately for social value creation.

Appendix 2 Summary of study trips to Asia, 2010–12 (excerpt from letter of introduction)

Ove Granstrand


As part of a large multi-year program for academic research in the innovation and intellectual property (IIP) area, sponsored by Swedish research foundations, we are doing academic study trips to Asia during 2010–12 with a focus on IIP policy, management, and institutional structure.

The general purpose of these field trips is:

To find facts about recent legal, economic and policy developments and to survey current issues and policies in the intellectual property (IP) and innovation area and their links to technology and innovation issues at large in China, India, Japan, and S. Korea. We focus especially on IIP institutions, IIP policies, and IIP management.

More specifically we will visit and interview:
