This database presents patent data linked to regions according to the addresses of the applicants and inventors. The data have been regionalised at a very detailed level so that more than 2000 regions are covered across OECD countries.
One of the distinctive characteristics of the current globalisation process is the emergence of global value chains. This paper shows how international input-output tables can be used to provide empirical evidence of the growing importance of these global value chains.

This document presents the three main components of a collaborative project on careers of doctorate holders: 1) the methodological guidelines; 2) a core model questionnaire and instruction manual; and 3) output indicator tables used for reporting data at the international level.
This paper quantifies and examines the contribution of capital, labour and multifactor productivity (MFP) to GDP growth and analyses the role of measurement of capital and labour inputs for the MFP estimate, using a comprehensive growth accounting exercise for 14 OECD countries.
This study aims at designing simple but robust methods that would enable to "nowcast", i.e. forecast the present (or the recent past), in order to improve the timeliness of patent indicators.
This paper aims to capture current inventive activities in nanotechnologies based on the analysis of patent applications to the European Patent Office (EPO).
This paper presents the results of a first data collection on the main demographic, educational, labour market and mobility patterns of doctoral graduates for seven countries.
