A general object of I3PM is to study problems related to the management of IP and to the profession of the members of the Institute, to come to conclusions on these problems and to convey these conclusions to the authorities and other interested parties as recommendations or opinions or as drafts. In this context, I3PM recognised over the past years that a lot of academic research in the field of IP is done on topics of low practical relevance for IP practitioners. For this reason we established the I3PM Advisory Board which facilitates to establish a better communication between industry, academic research and the administrative domain (including legislators). The Advisory Board tries identify real world IP topics which matter in practice and which have academic value with the goal to provide respective solutions. I3PM wants to channel such topics into academic institutions to make better use of academic resources. The research results will be provided to industry and legislators to facilitate future solutions to such problems.
Our current Advisory Board members include:
Brian Hinman, CIPO of Philips (2015)
Bo Heiden, University of Gothenburg – CIP (2015)
Yann Ménière, Chief Economist of the EPO (2016)
Former I3PM Presidents:
Martin Wilming (2008-2009)
Peter Bittner, I3PM

The latest Advisory Board Meeting took place in Eindhoven, Jan. 19, 2017 hosted by Philips.
In this meeting, the following potential research questions were identified:
Potential research question for the topic group: IP risk management
Collection of potential research question for the topic group: the IP function and its value creation
If you are interested in any one of these topics and if you would like to participate in the initiative to set up corresponding research activities, please contact Bent Lundsager firstname.lastname@example.org (Chairman of I3PM meets Academia)
