The aim of this paper is to share the experience gained from an early adoption of the ISO 56000 series of standards for innovation management systems. The University of Ruse is among the first universities in Bulgaria to implement an ISO 9001 quality management system. Later this system is updated and extended with elements of ISO 21001:2018- management systems for educational organizations. Since 2020 the Technology Transfer and Intellectual Property Centre (TTIPC) at the University of Ruse has implemented a number of requirements and guidelines of the ISO 56000 series of standards. The foundation of the integrated management system is ISO 56002:2019 with guidance for innovation management. The principles for innovation management from ISO 56000:2020 are being followed while implementing key methods and tools from ISO 56003:2019 for innovation partnership, ISO/TR 56004:2019 for innovation management assessment, ISO 56005:2020 for intellectual property management, and ISO 56006:2021 for strategic intelligence.
