Intangible Capital in Global Value Chains

How do companies manage their intangible assets in global value chains, and what role does intellectual property (IP) play in generating a return on these assets? Although there have been numerous studies on the rise of global value chains, little evidence is available to answer these questions. This report endeavors to help fill that gap.

The report focuses on tools and devices that are easily available on the market, and divides them into two main categories. The first category is represented by modern smartphones (or similar devices, such as a tablet). The second category is represented by a wide range of portable devices that are different from smartphones (e.g. portable spectrometers). Most of these tools have already appeared on the market, although some of them may only be available in forensic labs....Less
