IP Research

Welcome to the IP Research pages of the professional section of the website.

In recent years the IPO has worked with academia and industry to help develop the economic evidence base and forge relationships in the intellectual property research community, nationally and internationally. The programme proposed for 2013 /14 builds on this work.

Research commissioned by the IPO is published on this section of the website. You can also access papers commissioned or produced by the former Strategic Advisory Board for Intellectual Property Policy (SABIP).

Please contact our research team with any queries about the IPO's research programme.

If you would like the opportunity to tender for IPO research please register your interest with our procurement department.

Our Patent Informatics team carry out bespoke investigations about inventors, companies, and all fields of technology. A full list of new reports and research is available on our website.
