Patent applications to the EPO filed by OECD countries
By inventor's country of residence, 2011, thousands
Please refer to the source for a full list of definitions:
The indicators presented here are based on fractional counts. Fractional counts are applied for patents with multiple inventors/applicants: when a patent was invented by several inventors from different countries/regions, the respective contributions of each country/region is taken into account. This is done in order to eliminate multiple counting of such patents.
To date, the OECD Patent Database fully covers:
- Patent applications to the European Patent Office (EPO) (from 1978 onwards);
- Patents granted by the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) (from 1976 onwards);
- Patents filed under the Patent Co-operation Treaty (PCT), at international phase, that designate the EPO (from 1978 onwards);
- Patents that belong to Triadic Patent Families (OECD definition): i.e. sub-set of patents all filed together at the EPO, at the Japanese Patent Office (JPO) and at the USPTO, protecting the same set of inventions.
