Background and reasoning

In this webinar, co-hosted by Clarivate Analytics, we will explore current trends in big data technology as applied to scientific publication and intellectual property data. The Clarivate Analytics team, along with several key university partners, will present an overview of current predictive analytics technologies using these data as well as practical case studies highlighting the value and usefulness of these approaches to analysing the societal impact of science and innovation.

Clarivate Analytics uses its Data analytic tools to investigate and optimise opportunities that derive from the university research base which can be applied for industrial purposes. These purposes may include patent analytics, regulatory standards, pharmaceutical and biotech intelligence, trademark and domain brand protection and IPR issues.

This webinar will help you in gaining insight on how Big Data analytics helps you to predict the Societal Impact of Academic research, and intends to dive deeper into this topic from the viewpoints of:

    • Eamon Duede, Executive Director, KnowledgeLab, University of Chicago, USA
      Big Data, Innovation, and Insights into the Complexities of the Scientific Enterprise
    • Gaétan de Rassenfosse, Chair of Innovation and IP Policy, EPFL, Switzerland
      “IPRoduct: Tracing innovations in the market place”
    • Jason Rollins, Senior Director of Innovation, Clarivate Analytics, San Francisco, USA. Triple Helix Collaborations—Engines for Applied Research & Scientific Success


The webinar will take about 50 minutes, in which there will be presentations by three experts. Each expert will give a presentation of under 10 minutes, so there will be plenty of time for discussion with the other speakers and questions from the audience.
