They are going to impact IP management profoundly in many different ways. The special issue aims to shed light on recent, particularly qualitative research in this area.
Frank Tietze, co-Principal Investigator of the IPACST project, is a Guest Editor of the Special Issue, which is organized in collaboration with the IPACST project.
