Technology market transactions : auctions, intermediaries and innovation
'From this book, managers, academics and innovation policy makers will all benefit from new insights into the complex relationships between external technology exploitation strategies, patents, technology trade and open innovation processes. The convincing evidence - drawn from a dataset of technology auctions - helps firms to understand which of their patents are suitable for auction, and also provides guidance to intermediaries to help improve the auction models. The data presented in this book contributes to further price transparency on technology markets and hence to their further development.' - Hugo Tschirky, ETH Zurich, Switzerland. © Frank Tietze 2012.
