Process vs Product Patent

Post by JohnQ » Wed Jun 24, 2020 11:06 am

Dear EPO-PATSTAT users:

I am new using this database and I am studying their functionalities with research interest. I have a simple question:

Is there any indicator/variable o procedure in the database to distinguish between applications mainly focused on process innovation and applications mainly focused on product innovation?

Sorry whether my question can result a bit obvious but I am new working in this discipline and definitely I need your help.

Many thanks in advance for your help.
