Where IP leads: a history of promoting applied research

Applied research has long been a hallmark of UNH Law’s IP work. Through the Franklin Pierce Center for IP, we demonstrate how the strategic management of IP can contribute to business growth and global economic development. And by using a coordinated approach and collaborative research environment for all projects, we maximize their “real world” impact.

Our International Technology Transfer Institute is active in projects ranging from increasing the commercialization capacity of Argentina’s government-owned research institutes to developing patent landscape reports for HIV vaccines and insect-resistant sweet potatoes in Sub-Saharan Africa.

Other UNH Law research initiatives include developing mechanisms for the effective valuation of IP assets, preparing patent landscaping reports for research and development initiatives, and developing a robust rights-checking mechanism for registered IP rights.

The Franklin Pierce Center for IP faculty have actively published in a wide range of venues for over three decades, including:

  • Traditional casebooks
  • Traditional treatises
  • Traditional booklets and pamphlets
  • Reports
  • Law review articles
  • Professional journal articles
  • Presentations at IP conferences, institutes, symposia, workshops and continuing education venues including governmental, non-governmental and commercial organizations
  • Presentations in settings ranging from business to education
  • Web sites and pages
  • Blogs
  • Listservs
