STEM Doctoral Graduates and Inventive Activities in Four European Countries (DOC-TRACK)
Investigadora principal CSIC y Coordinadora: Catalina Martínez.
Convocatoria: European Patent Office Academic Research Program 2021.
Duración: 2022 - 2025
Entidad financiadora: European Patent Office.
Based on Electronic Doctoral Theses repositories, we match information on the doctoral graduates of France, Germany, the Netherlands and Spain to patent and scientific publication data. We thus identify both the graduates who become inventors and those who become scientists and publish articles cited in the patent literature, either directly or indirectly. We collect the same information for the graduates’ supervisors. We then explore the factors affecting the probability of graduates engaging in inventor careers and/or scientific ones, but with invention-relevant publications. These include gender and the supervisors’ scientific and inventive record.
