Patent quality and ownership: An analysis of UK faculty patenting

Contents:

Author Info

  • Sterzi, Valerio

Abstract

The relationship between ownership structure and the quality of academic inventions has not been deeply analysed, despite its relevance for the literature on IPR and university–industry knowledge transfer. This paper fills the gap by using a novel dataset of academic patents in the UK, both university-owned and corporate-owned for the period 1990–2001.
