    Corporate Technology Management & Licensing Practices in China

    The research objective is to identify corporate IP licensing or transfer corporate behaviors for companies operating in medical and healthcare devices and high technology fields. The study draws information from face-to-face interviews with and surveys filled by top managers as well as complementary data from the State Intellectual Property Office’s (SIPO) database for companies in the medical and healthcare devices and high technologies sectors (i.e., telecom, mobile Internet, consumer electronics/appliances, new technologies) – all of which are compared against the national industrial baseline level.

    China’s Overseas Patent Application Indicator

    This project provides an overview of China’s overseas patent application activities. Extending the work on triadic patent family (US-Europe-Japan) proposed by the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the project researches two new patent family indicators, namely, an alternative triadic patent family (China-US-Europe) indicator and a quadic patent family (China-US-Japan-Europe) indicator. By collecting and comparing the numbers of the three different patent families of the G20 Member Countries, the project analyzes China’s position in the world measured by each indicator. The project also studies the feasibility of using patent family indicators to evaluate innovation performance of a province (or region).

    Research on the Theory of Patent Market

    The number of patent applications submitted to the State Intellectual Property Office of China has been growing rapidly in recent years. Yet the development of patent market in China is still lagging behind by other advanced countries in the world. A well operating patent market will play an important part in promoting technology commercialization and patent monetization. This project focuses on the basic theory of patent market and the function of its related policy. It studies the difference of patent market and traditional goods market and uses traditional theory of market failure and newly developed theory of market design to analyze how to improve the function of patent system. The research aims to clarify the relationship between government and market, prove the necessity and importance of government intervention and propose proper ways of government intervention.

    Patenting Activities in Chinese High Technology Industries

    Based on Annual Survey of Industrial Enterprises and China Patent Abstract Database, the project analyzes R&D and patenting activities of Chinese high technology companies. The research project investigates patent premium of firms (the impact of patent protection on firms’ performance). It measures patent premium of domestic firms and foreign firms respectively, and also compares patent premium of firms facing different levels of industrial competition.
