USPTO Symposium: Advancing research on inventor demographics
Understanding the demographic makeup of inventors who apply for patents is a critical first step for characterizing who participates in the intellectual property ecosystem and for identifying policies that will expand participation. The USPTO is organizing a one-day symposium that will bring together economists, computer scientists, and others to discuss research methods, applied examples, and new ideas.

The symposium will:
• Provide an overview of current approaches from leading scholars in the field
• Build knowledge
• Identify a community of practitioners, and
• Facilitate the application of common approaches

This program will be of interest to all researchers engaged in inventor demographics based on administrative and other records. There is no charge to attend, but registration in advance is required.

This event will be hosted on Friday, August 26, 2022 from 9:00am - 3:30pm Eastern Time.

Aug 26, 2022 09:00 AM in Eastern Time (US and Canada)
