International Technology Management Research Seminar


This time, the topic is Innovation ecosystems in emerging economies. Interesting topics like Economics of complexities, patent systems and technology roadmapping in context of emerging economies will be discussed. There will be a special focus on Brazilian market as we will have a visiting professor from Brazil for the course. He will give deeper insights and share his research on innovation ecosystems in Brazil.

Methodologically, we will concentrate on the organization of essential data for technology roadmapping. You will learn how to use patent data to identify and analyze the technology trend and write a scientific case related to the theme.
