IC-SDV 2018: Frédéric Caillaud (INPI) Rating of the technical quality of patented inventions opens the door to quality ranking of companies’ patent portfolios

293 views

Published on

For years, all the professionals in charge of valuing companies' patent portfolios have tried, with varying degrees of success, to identify patents that were based on inventions of high technical quality. Contrary to what is written in many publications, it is not the companies that file the most patent applications that are the most innovative. The challenge is to objectively measure the technical quality of a portfolio of patented inventions based on public information. To this end, the INPI has joined forces with the OECD, the OST and industry in different sectors to improve and standardize methods of using indicators predicting the technical quality of inventions. Our ultimate goal is to create an international standard. This methodology allows a very fine comparison of the quality of the patent portfolios of companies operating in the same sector and the identification of the most innovative companies. If a ranking is now possible, our objective is to allow the most innovative to be better developed especially in their communication, attract investors, reassure shareholders, validate the quality of the head of the patent department or to borrow money using their patents as collateral. Quality must take precedence over quantity.

  5. 5. Predictive indicators for TechnologyPredictive indicators for Technology • Forward citations are reflecting the Technical impact of an invention as well as the economical importance of a patent (OECD) « If a set of patents is receiving more forward citations from third parties compared to the average in the sector during the same period of time, this invention has a better value » Accurate comparison 5 years post filing.
