In winter semester 2020/21 we have Prof. Araken Lima from INPI Brazil as guest lecturer, who will talk about innovation ecosystems in Brazil and introduce you to the method of technology roadmapping.

The thematic focus is on Innovation ecosystems in emerging economies. Interesting topics like Economics of complexities, patent systems and technology roadmapping in context of emerging economies will be discussed. Prof. Lima 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.
