We are pleased to inform you that we are now ready to release a new series of publications concerning case studies. Generally, the case is considered as an instance of real-life context. Our case studies are brief exemplary or cautionary documents analysing a subject from which it is possible to stress successful or failure factors. Therefore, we will offer you the opportunity to come across some case studies presenting not only examples to follow but also mistakes to avoid, and from the reading of which you should be able to infer some useful and helpful conclusions.
The first case study has been produced in collaboration with Own-it, an IP service established within the University of the Arts London. Own-it's case has been selected as an instructive example of a first-line IP advice so as to highlight the importance of setting up an IP centre within academic institutions. This service's purpose is to confer a holistic approach to IP education and management, to convert knowledge into socio-economic benefits. This indeed matches the guidelines given by the European Commission in its “Recommendation on the management of intellectual property in knowledge transfer activities for universities and other public research organisations”.
