Patent specialization by technology class for Greece

Post by HannahKroeger » Wed May 22, 2019 11:50 am

For a research about Innovation and Employment in Greece I would need the data concerning the patent specialization by technology class for Greece.
How can I access it?
Thanks for the help!

Hello Hannah,
technology classes can be identified thought for example the patent classification scheme, be it IPC or CPC classess (at various levels of granularity).
Another option would be to use the so called "technology fields and sectors" available via the TLS230 and TLS901 tables in PATSTAT.
But before giving a possible approach, how would you identify the "for Greece" condition ?
Options are applicant country, inventors country, patent authority, entered into national phase and there are some more exotic definitions and variations.
