Research Strategies Australia has undertaken an analysis of Advanced Manufacturing Technology (AMT) research in Australia since 2015 to examine the trajectory of research activity, and its contribution to international technology development in the period since the national Science and Research Priorities were introduced.
Using data from Lens.org and unique patent network analysis, Research Strategies Australia have traced where Australian AMT research is directly and indirectly influencing global advanced manufacturing technologies.
We have analysed data made available by The Lens, tracking the connections between scholarly publications and patent documents. We have applied a custom query which we have previously used with our consulting clients which examines both the direct and indirect connections across these large datasets. Uniquely, this traces connections from across the network of scholarly citations through to the global patenting data (i.e. we have expanded our analysis beyond the research which is directly cited as prior art), thereby allowing us to see the influence that Australian research is having on industrial technology development… Read more
