Management practices of academic patent appraisal

Tiago Soares da Silva, Suzana Leitão Russo

Abstract


Objective: To understand the patent valuation practices developed in the academic context to promote innovation.

Methodology: A systematic review of the literature was carried out from the scientific bases Scopus and Web of Science using specific search strings, in which 377 works were found. After applying the defined criteria, eight articles were analyzed.

Originality: The study is justified due to the importance of understanding the valuation of academic patents as an inducer of innovation.

Main results: The results led to a current understanding of perspectives related to the valuation of academic patents on two fronts: models of academic patent valuation and managerial practices of patent valuation in order to promote innovation.

Theoretical-methodological contributions: The research presents an incremental theoretical contribution in the area of valuation of academic patents.

Social/Managerial Contributions: Academic patent valuation practices are important mechanisms to induce technological innovation by universities, and the gains are generally defined in the form of royalties.
