The Technological Specialization of Countries: An Analysis of Patent Data

Lucio Picci and Luca Savorelli ()

No 201301, Discussion Paper Series, School of Economics and Finance from School of Economics and Finance, University of St Andrews

Abstract: New methods of analysis of patent statistics allow assessing country profiles of technological specialization for the period 1990-2006. We witness a modest decrease in levels of specialization, which we show to be negatively influenced by country size and degree of internationalization of inventive activities.
