Facilitating the mobilisation, sharing, or exchange of patents is important to promote innovation. Analysis of the functions, business models, and activities of IP specialist firms which organise the circulation of patented inventions is the central topic of this research.
What impact has the crisis had on innovation and spending on research and development? How can innovation help to solve environmental and social threats? The OECD Science, Technology and Industry Scoreboard 2009 provides the data and analysis to answer these questions.
The STI Scoreboard illustrates and analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries. It includes the latest figures for R&D, foreign direct investment, risk capital and technology-related trade.
This paper investigates the characteristics, functioning and incidence of pre-emptive patenting, defined as patent filings whose main effect is to hamper the grant of other patents.
This country note, extracted from the STI Scoreboard 2009, explores recent developments in matters relating to innovation, science, technology and globalisation in the United States.
