Gerpisa colloquium, Paris (2016)


How to understand the forms of government in the inventive activity related to electric vehicles?? To answer this question, we have the patent information contained in the USPTO, 1976-2012 period. For this reason we study: i) the complexity, source and nature of technology; ii) agents (inventors, companies, partnerships, joint ventures, etc.); and iii) institutions (internal contracts, markets, intellectual property rights, etc.).

Some of the results are as follow: i) simple technologies are related to individual inventors; ii) the complex technologies are related to universities and research centers; iii) the company relate with simple and complex technologies. In addition, companies in partnership with other actors (universities, research centers or other companies) are related to complex technologies.
