Academic Patenting in Sweden: New Evidence from the 2011 Database
  • Evangelos Bourelos
  • Maureen McKelvey
swedish data 3 sets
Swedish Data : 3 sets
  • 2005: KEINS. Full analysis. List of academics => matching EPO. All positions, most all universities and technical/medical universities
    • 6 universities tend to patent
    • University invented completely diff uni-owned
    • Most all uni invented are assigned to firms
  • 2009: MSc project. Analysis of the 6 unis that patented
  • 2011: ESF. Full analysis. List of academics => matching EPO. All positions, same univ(minus 1)
    • Just finishing the database

  • The Data
  • 27 Universities
  • 48 220 Employees
  • 36 231 Academics

matching this list with epo data
Matching this list with EPO Data
  • Data- Retrieved from “DISCO” server
  • -Clean characters From Swedish letters

(Ä,Ö,Å)

(Already done in EPO Data)

-Split names to eliminate middle initials

(Mats j. Andersson  Mats Andersson)

  • Match according to initials on surname and name

(Mats Johansson  MAJO)

matching
Matching
  • Matching Initials 635 951 Combinations
  • Calculate Similarity Scores

Name, Surname, Address, Zip Code, City

Total Similarity Score

Left joint from Academic’s database to EPO data

If 0 on right side, observation omitted

filtering
Filtering
  • 1. (+) Pairs with SIMILARITY_TOT = 0;

(Excluded SLU and UMU where address was missing)

2. (+) Verified inventors in 2005 and or 2009 database

3. (-) Minimum age to file a patent is set at 22 (to improve)

4. (-) Matches in disciplines with very small probability of patenting were excluded.

Excluded: Humanities apart from linguistics,

Social sciences apart from Business and Economics, applied psychology, media

  • 4. (+-) Similarity name= similarity surname=0

some notes on sweden
Some notes on Sweden
  • Legal framework: Professor’s privilege
  • Mainly university-invented. if TTO, likely Karolinska
  • Still owned by companies, skewed to MNCs, plus TTO (Karolinska) but also SMEs and individuals
  • Top patenting at: Comprehensive universities (Uppsala, Lund, Linköping) as well as specialised medicine (Karolinksa) and specialised engineering (KTH, Chalmers)
  • From other research: These 6 have high science or publications (exemption of Linköping) and high R&D investment from firms (exemption of Uppsala)
  • Only 38% by professors – important to include the personnel categories
increasing controlling for precision
Increasing-controlling for precision
  • Manual check/contact for 404 inventors-not existing in previous databases.
  • Using the co-inventors dimension for verification
next step
Next step
  • Cross sectional dataset 2005, 2011
  • Three level analysis
  • -Individual Level
  • Discipline Level
  • University Level
  • (potential for country level as well)
