The post doc researcher will work on an international, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary research project titled “Intellectual Property Models to Accelerate Sustainability Transitions -An Analysis of Sustainable Business Models for Clean Energy and the Circular Economy” (IPACST). IPACST aims to develop evidence - based insights into intellectual property (IP) models and how they can help to accelerate sustainability transition.
IPACST is a consortium project and joint endeavour with a team of colleagues from the Institute of Management at the Freie University of Berlin (Germany), the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University (Sweden) and the Department of Management Studies at the Indian Institute of Science.
The IPACST project involves considerable travel within India. The project involves interviewing and building case studies that furthers our understanding of transition processes towards more sustainable societies particularly with a focus on the role of IP models (e.g. patent strategies, pools and pledges, licensing, open source) and sustainability.
