The Latest Canadian Patent Competitive Intelligence (2013/2/5)


Published on

In 2009, when I was working for the Region of Peel government, Canada, I successfully used patent mapping to identify 20 US patent intensive companies as the potential employers for highly educated immigrants. Following this initiative, I created a Canadian patent competitive intelligence (CI) database to track the latest patent competence of over 4000 Canadian entities, in all sector and from coast to coast in Canada, on a weekly basis. My work with Region of Peel from 2010 to 2012 showed that this database can provide the "no-older-than-7-day" intelligence for long-term strategic research/planning and short-term tactics. This is also the first attempt in Canada to use patent landscape as a regional economic strength indicator and a baseline for policy harmonization and policy performance evaluation.
