The effective management of IP is challenged by the ever-changing market for creative content and rapidly developing technology. As traditional business models seek to adapt to new realities, IP management strategies must also evolve. This project undertook an analysis of Intellectual Property management and exploitation strategies being employed across creative and cultural industries.
Project outputs include:
- Tales from the Drawing Board: IP wisdom and woes from Scotland's creative industries - A collection of case studies from creative producers’ everyday efforts to manage and benefit from IP, this book focuses on the management of IP among SMEs, micro- organisations and sole traders, a sector whose encounters with the IP landscape have not been as widely researched.
- Evaluating Knowledge Transfer Partnerships: Collaborative Research Between Creative Scotland and the University of St Andrews, Proceedings of the ESRC Research Capacity Building Clusters; National Summit Conference 2013
