as you might have noticed, the last couple of months were rather quiet on this blog. But don't worry, I am still alive (actually, more sporty than ever!) and plan to continue blogging. It was just the time of running my doctoral thesis finish line, which 'sucked' all my free time and sometimes even my usual craving to write. The thesis was submitted and when the resulting publication is out, I will surely let you know. In any case, the big news is that beginning the next month, I am moving on to a new academic role and thus step-by-step even to a new country. I will be joining the great team of researchers at the University in Tilburg in the Netherlands, where I was offered the position of Assistant Professor in Intellectual Property as a joint appointment of the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society (TILT) and the Tilburg Law and Economics Center (TILEC). So, of course, I will continue to focus on technologies, intellectual property and innovation.
Please stay tuned!
