The “Patent Statistics for Decision Makers-2011” Conference will be held 16-17 November 2011, Alexandria, Virginia. The Conference is organized by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) in cooperation with the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), European Patent Office (EPO), Eurostat, Japan Patent Office (JPO), and World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). Statistical analysis of patent data commonly aids decision-makers in assessing the opportunities available to them, and provides key insights into the risks and challenges associated with their decision options.
The conference will explore advances in the analysis of patent information in the context of the changing legal, economic, competitive and technological landscapes. The Conference aims to educate and share best practices by surveying the breadth of thinking – while exploring the frontiers of our knowledge – on issues relevant to using patent information by industry, academic, and government decision makers.
The Conference’s target audience are experts, statisticians, researchers and analysts working in the fields of innovation, patents, and science and technology policy.
