Scientific presence is a holistic look at science and technology activity in a particular location. Scientific Presence metrics, when combined with information about new patented inventions, presents a picture of emerging inventive and innovative trends, nascient market development, the depth of scientific activity in a location, the companies establishing outposts in new locations beyond their corporate headquarters, and how many people are participating in these activities. Way Better Patents combines this data with information on 21st Century internet-enables cross-location collaboration among inventors and company to identify the real density of business-oriented inventors in a location and who those inventors are working with. This helps identify new outposts of innovation activity that may not be obvious from other ways of looking at innovation. Scientific presence under its many names is a critical factor in site selection for science and technology intense global businesses.
Way Better Patents™ combines its own custom patent and innovation analytics with authoritative information on R&D spending, demographic data on education and the economic census data, grant data, information on patent owners, and the presence of young companies, the engines of job creations. Way Better Patents also creates highly focused fine-tuned views of location based scientific presence information to support our users who wish to look deeper at scientific presence in their neighborhood and beyond.
