3rd Workshop: The Output of R&D activities: Harnessing the Power of Patents Data

 

13-14 June 2011 – IPTS (Seville, Spain)

 

The workshop aimed at improving the understanding of the patent system, focusing on empirical analysis, methodology, and the use of the PATSTAT database. The speakers provided world-leading contributions from complementary standpoints: the Academia, the EPO, the US patent and trademark office (USPTO), WIPO, OHIM, national Patent Offices, the OECD, and the European Commission.

Patent analysis has become, in particular since the creation of the worldwide EPO database, a mainstream tool for evaluation a variety of issues on a quantitative basis: R&D performance and benchmarking, Sources and flows of knowledge, internationalisation and cooperation, etc. Along this line of work, the JRC-IPTS, especially within the PREDICT project developed for e European Commission's Directorate General for Information Society and Media (INFSO) has gained an acknowledged role by developing original methods and results that serve the world community of patent analysts. Part of this role has built, since the very beginning, on the organisation of a community of researchers, meeting once a year in Seville, and exchanging about best practices, new results and new questions.
