Abstract

The CRIOS-PatStat is a patent database made by a team of researchers active at Bocconi University (Milan).

In this database the user can find, for European patent office based applications, disambiguated inventors and applicants' names as well as other standardized information that are often difficult to find in other patent databases.

This paper was written with the aim to provide a complete explanation of its content and also an overview on the steps that led to the creation of this source of information.

Keywords: Patents; academic patenting; inventor data; intellectual property; data cleaning

JEL Classification: C81
