European Commission has published European Innovation Scoreboard 2006. Lot of interesting statistics, tables analysis, comparisons….it takes hours to go through all these materials. From 25 indicators you can find also 5 about intellectual property:
EPO patents per million population
USPTO patents per million population
Triadic patent families per million population
New community trademarks per million population
New community designs per million population.
Summary of the situation in the 27 EU Member States is shown in EU Press Release. One of main conclusions seems to be that the gap with the US keeps narrowing. I’m not so sure in it when I see the intellectual property numbers in table on page 35-36 in full report of the European Innovation Scoreboard 2006. Europe is so heterogeneous – it depends very much which countries are compared by which indicators.
There is also international comparison – summary of Global Innovation Scoreboard and overview of global innovation performance by innovation index:
There are also two more documents what I found where are analized intellectual property aspects: 2006 Trend Chart report: Patent applications by SMEs – An analysis of CIS-3 data for 15 countries and EIS2006 Strenghts and Weaknesses Report country by country.
So,….interesting, but it needs time to go through all those documents
