Co-invention patents by inventor country pairs

This dataset provides the number of co-inventions (simple patent families) developed jointly by at least two inventors. This indicator is disaggregated by:

  • Inventor country: country of residence of the inventor(s), integral counted; in cases when inventors from more than two countries collaborate, this is translated into distinct bilateral relationships between country pairs. For example, if inventors from 3 countries collaborate (e.g. USA, DEU, JPN) then a unit count is assigned to 3 country pairs (USA-DEU, DEU-JPN, JPN-USA); in this case a country generally coordinate the project and the others are partners.
  • Partner country: country of residence of the inventor(s) who collaborate to the patent.
  • Technology domain: Harvesting technology / Aquaculture technology / New products and markets
