Das Buch folgt der These, dass der Unternehmenserfolg internationaler, mittelständischer Unternehmen in zunehmenden Maß von dem Wettbewerbserfolg ihrer innovativen Produkte, Verfahren und Dienstleistungen sowie deren Patentschutz abhängt. Empirisch wird die These anhand der regionalen Strukturen in ausgewählten ostdeutschen Bundesländern im Spiegel relevanter Wirtschafts- und Mittelstandsdaten analysiert, aber auch an wesentlichen Indikatoren der Innovations- und FuE-Tätigkeit dieser Unternehmen sowie deren regionale Kooperations- und Innovationstätigkeiten. Außerdem wird der Einsatz förderpolitischer Instrumente der Regional-, FuE- und Mittelstandspolitik für einzelne Bundesländer beschrieben, analysiert und kritisch kommentiert. Ein zweiter Teil des Buches setzt sich mit dem Gewerblichen Rechtsschutz, dem Patentgesetz sowie dem Patentmanagement im Unternehmen auseinander. Dieser Teil zeigt, wie ein ganzheitlicher Innovationsprozess als Unternehmensstrategie, von der Idee bis zur Marktreife, nur mit Hilfe des Intellectual Property-Managements international abgesichert und gesteuert werden kann.

Research on patent valuation has become increasingly important in academic and policy circles in the last few decades. In part, this is the outcome of the wide consensus that innovation is a crucial ingredient for growth at various levels. On the other hand, there has also been an overcoming of growth models unilaterally focused on technological-oriented approaches. This book presents novel and original research on patent value determinants, which are intrinsic or extrinsic to the innovator's business model. Grid Thoma has undertaken a long study on the strategic factors affecting patent valuation, bringing extensive quantitative evidences across various geographical and institutional contexts. Beforehand, the valuation of the patent real options is appraised when the innovator can postpone the additional investment required for the patent's successful exploitation. Then, he analyses what other complemental IP strategies are combined with patenting that in turn directly affect the value of patents. Moreover, the book scrutinizes the so-called 'strategic patenting' hypothesis according to which innovators obtain patents for other reasons beyond gaining IP protection. A second order of strategic factors affecting the value of patents resides at the outset of the invention process. These are constituted by knowledge spillovers, which are typically mediated by the local geographical context where the invention process takes place. The analysis shows that the contribution of knowledge spillovers from business and nonbusiness organizations to the value of the patented R&D constitutes a relevant aspect for an innovator's decision making. This thoughtful, cutting-edge research book is vital reading for researchers, academics, and policy decision makers in the area of in market valuation, management of technology, innovation management, and economic geography.

The contribution of research and development to a company's market value has grown considerably in recent years. In the mid-1970s, accountants were able to capture on their ledgers 90-95% of a firm's book value, but by 2000 the importance of intangible assets had grown to the point where they could account for only 13-15%. Financial economists and accountants have investigated the link between a firm's market value and its R&D spending, and various factions advocate a variety of positions on the amount and rate of investment, investors' ability to capture returns on that investment, and ways to measure value, investment, and returns. 'Tech Stock Valuation' extends the R&D literature by providing detailed direct evidence on the market value implications of inventive and innovative output. Specifically, the book demonstrates that stock-price effects of patent output are most pronounced in the case of of high-quality patents, where patent quality is measured by scientific merit. Scientific measures of patent quality give tech stock investors and R&D managers a valuable new tool that can be used to measure R&D program effectiveness. At the same time, it gives investors a new tool to help them assess the value of hard-to-measure intangible assets. *Provides detailed direct evidence on the market value implications of inventive and innovative output *Based on recent research, much of which Dr. Hirschey has pioneered *Gives financial professionals a new tool for assessing R&D quality and its relation to market valuation

The nanotechnology industry is a fast growing industry with many unique characteristics. When bringing the results of nanotechnology research to the market, companies and universities run into unforeseen problems related to intellectual property rights and other legal and regulatory issues. An effective commercialization of the results of research requires basic knowledge of the relevant issues and a well-defined strategy, while the absence of such knowledge and strategy can be detrimental to the commercial potential of any invention. Even the most impressive scientific achievements can become a commercial failure due to a lack of understanding and strategy relating to the legal and regulatory issues surrounding the commercialization of a technology. With contributions from twenty experts in the field, Nanotechnology Commercialization for Managers and Scientists discusses the most relevant issues that a company or university will face when bringing a nanotechnology invention to the market. A large part of the book will be dedicated to the obtainment, strategic use, valuation and licensing of patents. Further chapters will deal with e.g. investment, university-industry collaboration, environment health and safety, etc. In this way managers and scientists at universities and companies are provided with a handbook that provides them with industry specific basic knowledge of issues that they are unfamiliar with but is essential to the commercial success of their inventions.
