This tenth edition of the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard builds on the OECD’s 50 years of indicator development to present major world trends in knowledge and innovation. It analyses a wide set of indicators of science, technology, globalisation and industrial performance in OECD and major non-OECD countries (notably Brazil, the Russian Federation, India, Indonesia, China and South Africa) and includes some experimental indicators that provide insight into new areas of policy interest.

Patenting firms

Applicants in patent documents can be enterprises, organisations or persons. Business registers include information on enterprises and their main characteristics. By matching patent applicants’ names to enterprise names in business registers the patenting behaviour of firms can be linked to firm characteristics such as industrial sector, age and size. Matched patent and firm data can also review industries’ contribution to the development of key technologies, such as biotechnology and information and communication technology (ICT).
