The current issue of Technology and Innovation, Journal of the National Academy of Inventors ® (19.2) (full text) examines innovation from the university perspective, highlighting what the most innovative institutions and educators worldwide are doing to prepare future engineers and industry leaders to effectively manage IP to grow their companies and the global economy as a whole.

"For the first time, academic scholarship and curricular issues of epistemology and pedagogy are packaged and aligned in a manner that facilitates broad adoption of IP- related course content in multiple schools of the academy," notes guest editor James G.
