From Technology to Market: Revelations from an IPC-Nice Concordance Table

Gaétan de Rassenfosse (EPFL), T'Mir Julius (Swinburne University of Technology) & Alfons Palangkaraya (Swinburne University of Technology), “From Technology to Market: Revelations from an IPC-Nice Concordance Table”

In this paper, we develop a concordance table between the classification systems for patents and trademarks and investigate the link between innovation (the technology) and new product and services (the market). We construct the concordance table using novel application level patent and trademark data for the population of intellectual property right owners in Australia. The table is built at a high level of disaggregation in order to reveal the underlying technology-to-market activities and increase its relevance to research community worldwide.
