- Case stories
A research project often give rise to many different types of novel knowledge that can be seen as intellectual assets: data, methods, models, design, software and inventions. These can be utilised in many different ways but regardless which you choose, it’s important to think about who actually owns them, how to protect them and in what way you want to make them available to others.
Based on the research of Professor Ulf Petrusson (Göteborgs universitet), the Innovation office has developed a tool for making an inventory of your intellectual assets: Intellectual Assets Inventory.
Intellectual Assets Inventory is a tool that aims to list and categorize various potential intellectual assets linked to a specific research project. Such a list makes it easier to get an overview of the intellectual assets that exist and to highlight the assets that may be useful for others. This also makes it easier to communicate these to other stakeholders such as financiers, partners, colleagues and research students.
