CambridgeIP survey on patenting activity in nanotechnology.
Survey participants will be provided with anonymized survey results by way of thanks for their participation.
About this survey: The objective of this survey is to identify the key Intellectual Property issues facing the nanotechnology community today. The survey will collect non-confidential and anonymous information about your organization, your nanotech patent strategies and your nanotech patent activities. The survey will close on 30 June 2011.
CambridgeIP will present anonymized survey results to policymakers and at a range of events and seminars. Your survey responses and any comments you make will not be attributed to you, and your contact information (where provided) will not be passed to any third party. Survey participants will be provided with anonymized survey results by way of thanks for their participation.

Additional background to the survey: Intellectual property (IP) is an increasingly important tool to speed up commercialization of research in nanotechnology and other R&D intensive domains. Yet the IP information pool is vast and complex, moreover many studies suggest that the IP strategies of incumbents including patent stacking and the development of ‘patent thickets’ can hinder innovation and commercialization activities. Consequently, CambridgeIP is increasingly called upon to use its IP capabilities to assist public sector organizations and investors in the development of policies and investment strategies.
