Short Bio

Yann Ménière is professor of economics at MINES ParisTech, currently on leave to serve as the Chief Economist of the European Patent Office in Munich. His research and expertise relate to the economics of innovation, competition and intellectual property. Before joining the EPO, he was heading the Mines-Telecom Chair on "IP and Markets for Technology", and has been focusing more specifically on IP and standards, markets for technology and IP issues in climate negotiations. Besides his publications in academic journals, he wrote with F. Lévêque a textbook on 'the economics of patents  and copyright' (Berkeley Electronic Press, 2004). He also produced various policy reports for the European Commission, French government, French Patent Office or other public organisations. Outside MINES ParisTech, he has been teaching the economics of IT Standards at Imperial College Business School (UK) and the economics of IP Law at the Law School of Université Catholique de Louvain (Belgium). He was also associated as an economic expert with Microeconomix and Ecorys, two consulting firms specialised respectively in economics applied to law, and public policies.
