|Project duration||December 2017 - June 2018|
Purpose and goal
By mapping the existing relevant patents within transport infrastructure, the project aims at facilitating prioritization of R&D initiatives within InfraSweden2030, as well as creating an information source for industry actors in their development efforts. The objective of the project is to compile relevant patent publications within the past 25 years for InfraSweden2030´s five focus areas.
Expected results and effects
After searching through international patent databases, approximately 850 patents have been identified as relevant to InfraSweden2030´s focus areas. A patent list has been compiled for each focus area within InfraSweden2030. For most patents, the information on the list is linked to an inernational patent database where detailed information about the patent can be obtained. The patent lists can provide an important source of information for future R&D priorities within InfraSweden2030 and also for the industry players.
Planned approach and implementation
A map of appropriate keywords was put together for each focus area within InfraSweden2030. These, together with standard patent classes, formed the basis for patent suverys in several international patent databases. The survey was carried out separately for one focus area at a time and the result was compiled in a report in the form of a patent list. In most cases, the information in the patent list is linked to a patent database where detailed information about the patent can be obtained.
