Article
To drive sustainability on a global scale for a carbon-neutral future, green innovations and a better understanding of how intellectual property (IP) impacts their research, development, and diffusion are needed. In this paper, we identify IP models adopted by green innovators in three innovation process phases, namely: research; development/commer...
Article
Full-text available
This note highlights broad societal concerns associated with the intellectual property (IP) system and presents illustrative case examples to show how firms can address such concerns to fulfill their corporate social responsibility while simultaneously enjoying exclusivity obtained through IP rights. IP-specific initiatives taken by mission-oriente...
Article
Full-text available
Business models direct a firm’s activity to move in coherence with the objectives of the business. Current literature suggests business models can act as vital forces to facilitate sustainability transitions and highlights the urgent research call to understand the role of business model innovations in stimulating sustainability transitions. This p...
Preprint
Full-text available
Sustainability transition theories analyse a systematic shift towards sustainability at micro (niche), meso (regime) and macro (landscape) level. The assessment of technological systems and structures at the firm level in sustainability transition literature is scant. The present study, taking the technological assessment perspective at the firm le...
Article
Full-text available
Intellectual property rights (IPR) form an important component for unlocking sustainable innovation. Research highlights both the positive role of IPR in incentivizing sustainable innovation and the negatives, such as delaying diffusion. We review the state-of-art debates on incentivizing sustainable innovations and the role of IPR for sustainable...
Article
This paper explores firm level perspectives for sustainability transitions by analysing the activity system of a firm from the transition management lens. While sustainable business model studies provide useful inputs for firms’ sustainability actions, their role in contributing to sustainability transitions over decadal time scales remains largely...
Article
Full-text available
This study examines the effect of public funding and its lag structure on research outputs in higher academic technical institutions of India. It contributes to the literature by providing empirical evidence on the determinants of academic publications and patents in the developing country context. We use panel data of actual yearly expenditure of...
Article
Full-text available
To drive sustainability transitions on a global scale for a carbon neutral future, green innovations are needed. In this study, we are keen to understand the role of intellectual property (IP) and particularly, its usage by firms innovating for a sustainable future. Unfortunately, little is known about how IP impacts sustainability transitions. To...

The present study, taking the technological assessment perspective at the firm le...
Article
The objective of this paper is to measure the change in total factor productivity and relative research efficiency of scientific departments of Indian higher academic technical institutions with the change in the competitive decision-making units (DMU) and the type of research outputs over the period of time. Panel datasets for nine departments of...
Research
Full-text available
the objectives of this report are two-fold. First, it examines the level of awareness among Indian technology start-ups about various forms of IPR and their efforts for its protection. Secondly, it explores if the tech start-ups are availing the benefits of Indian government initiatives like Start-up India and similar other programmes/schemes. This...
Presentation

This paper responds to the call for sustainability by providing a comprehensive framework for sustainability impact assessment of firms in IT and electronic industry. The unit of analysis is firm and considers all the externalities created by the firm regarding suppliers, vendors, and distributors. Sustainability performance is assessed by 24 indic...
Article
The objective of this paper is to measure the relative research efficiency of scientific departments of Indian higher academic technical institutions and to understand the change in their Total Factor Productivity (TFP) over the period of time. The paper also explores the change in relative research efficiency of different departments and institute...
Chapter
Full-text available
This chapter develops a conceptual framework and structural model for the measurement of innovation by universities. Theoretical framework has been built by adopting the linear model of innovation and “non-linear” elements are added to depict the interactive learning theory of systems approach of innovation. Interpretive structural modelling (ISM)...
Article
Full-text available
The present paper explores whether social media usage patterns differ across various personality types. Such an examination is warranted, as social media platforms are growing exponentially and being explored for almost all business functions. The paper is based online survey of working professionals who are pursuing three years master's program in...
Conference Paper
The present paper offers best and worst case scenarios of out-of-cycle-review (OCR) of India's IPR laws by the US. It appears that benefits outweigh the negative possibilities. The paper also details the background of OCR, its importance for the private industry in US, its modus operandi and India's status over the years.
Article
This study uses data on publication, and patents, of 347 universities and technical institutes of India from 1970 to 2010, to understand their current research status. We find that though the total number of patents and publications has been increasing gradually, the contribution of Indian academic institutions in patenting is still low and need...
