Clarivate Analytics Supports Australian Investment Opportunities in Public Sector Intellectual Property With Derwent Patent Data

SYDNEY, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Clarivate Analytics, the global leader in providing trusted insights and analytics to accelerate the pace of innovation, has partnered with IP Australia by providing  its enhanced patent data to augment its Source IP database. The enhanced Derwent patent data will be available for a number of patents currently listed on the Source IP national initiative.

Source IP was launched in November 2015 to help expose potential collaboration opportunities to Australian businesses seeking to work with public sector research partners and to facilitate quick and easy contact. The main goal of Source IP is to increase investment in public sector IP.

Source IP will expand its current Australian patent data with additional patent fields from the enriched patent data from Clarivate Analytics, specifically the Derwent World Patents Index (DWPI). With the addition of DWPI, it will be easier for industries to search and comprehend available patents, identify what patents can be licensed from Australian universities to strengthen their own R&D efforts, and identify potential research partners. Source IP currently features research expertise from over 67 research organizations including Commonwealth research organizations, universities, Medical Research Institutes and Cooperative Research Centers.

"We have always strongly supported the Australian government's National Innovation and Science Agenda. This includes supporting the Source IP initiative with our enhanced DWPI patent data as part of our continuous efforts at Clarivate Analytics to promote greater academia-industry collaboration within the innovation communities around the world," said Jeroen Prinsen, Vice President and Head of Australasia and Southeast Asia at Clarivate Analytics.

Patricia Kelly, IP Australia's Director General, commented on the contribution from Clarivate, "We're extremely privileged to have Clarivate Analytics provide us with the Derwent abstracts. These abstracts help strengthen Source IP, which is a powerful tool helping connect IP rights holders with Australian businesses. The Derwent abstracts have increased the chance of investment in public sector IP, potentially helping many different publicly funded research parties." 

Trusted by more than 40 patent offices worldwide, Derwent patent data, tools and technology, including DWPI is considered the global leader in providing research solutions to inventors, IP professionals and licensing specialists. DWPI provides the world's most trusted source of patent data, delivering editorially enhanced, authoritative and accurate patent data. Users accessing Source IP to investigate the licensing and collaboration opportunities that exist within Australia's research organizations will be able to review and access DWPI abstracts. In turn, enriched patent data provides users insight on the novelty of the respective invention and how it can be used, along with a re-written title to accurately reflect the nature of the invention for ease of comprehension. Source IP users will be able to gain a quick and accurate understanding of   how the research organizations' inventions may be applied in their industry, as many original patent documents tend to use highly technical terminology to describe the invention.
