Research performance of university patenting in Australia: a pilot assessment

This study examined patent metrics to assess the scope and impact of inventions originating from university research.

The Research Performance of University Patenting in Australia: A Pilot Assessment study examined patents originating from 12 Australian universities and considered metrics such as the:

  • Number of patents published
  • Technology specialisations
  • Frequency of citations of patents in other literature. 

From this data we were able to extend our understanding of the relationship between patents and the impact of university originated research.
