Description

  •  28/02/2017

The indicator depicts the share of patents granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) (by priority year) with at least one foreign co-inventor in total patents invented by resident(s) of country x (inventor). The degree to which patents are co-developed in different countries helps monitoring the internationalisation of research and the intensity of international R&D collaboration.

Data for the last year are provisional. Significant revisions are expected because the procedures for patents are very long and several years are necessary to have final data.
