EU-Japan research cooperation in patenting activity
7. Mär 2017
In the course of the JEUPISTE project, funded by the European Union under the 7th Framework Programme (Grant Agreement Number: 609585) we analysed the cooperation between Japan and member states of the European Union in research and development. Part of that activity was this report [Hyperlink] which provided an overview of the patterns in EU-Japan collaborative research measured in patenting activity. Despite all problems, patent applications and patents are the most important indication of inventive activity and novel codified knowledge. As part of this exercises we scrutinised the patenting activity deploying descriptive statistics, the methods of Revealed Technological Advantage (RTA) analysis and Social Network Analysis (SNA) to analyse the specialisation and international cooperation of patenting activities.
