Thomson Reuters has introduced The State of Innovation website featuring industry trends and insights from the news agency’s Intellectual Property & Science branch. Focused on the lifecycle of innovation, the new platform presents the ‘iterative process of discovering, protecting and commercialising ideas’ and includes Reuters’ annual Top 100 Global Innovators.
‘Innovation is at the heart of the global economy. It is the lifeblood of business, but it’s difficult to measure,’ explains Reuters IP & Science president, Basil Moftah. ‘By dissecting innovation to its core components – the scientific research that informs initial discovery and the patents that protect and commercialise new ideas – we can begin to identify important trends that influence the future of the global economy’, he adds.
The project seeks to help ‘curious minds create a better tomorrow, enabling these agents of change to locate signals in the noise of data, protect their intangible assets and imagine a better tomorrow’.
The launch coincides with Reuters’ latest report, ‘The Future Is Open: 2015 State of Innovation’, which examines fundamental research and patent activity worldwide. You can request access to this report here.
