The paper, titled "Valuation of early stage technology in the information and communication industry" co-authored in partnership with Chao Ai of Huawei Ltd, presents one of the outcomes from the VEST research project funded by Huawei Ltd. The paper looked at the value of technology in Information and Communications Technology industry.
