MetadataShow full item record
This paper aims to investigate the difference in inventing characteristics of inventors according to the types of organization (large firms, small firms, universities, public research institutes) where they are affiliated. In addition, we extends its discussion to make clear both the similarity and difference in characteristics of Korea, Japan, US and EU inventors by comparing the previous surveys (PatVal, RIETI, GT) and ours. A survey of the Korean inventors was conducted in 2010 by KISTEP.
