Academic Patenting in Sweden: New Evidence from the 2011 Database
Paper in proceedings, 2012
Abstract: After the collection of data on Swedish academic inventors in 2011, we created a longitudinal dataset containing two points in time. The 2005 dataset has indicated that research intense universities take the most patents, a trend which still remains. We describe and analyze the dynamics within the different disciplines among the 6 universities with highest number of patents. For these 6 universities data from 2009 are combined and compared too. Preliminary results indicate that Sweden still performs better than other European countries, where data available.
