Global impact of fast-growing nations: Building BRICKS
The Intellectual Property and Science business of Thomson Reuters recently published a new study called Building BRICKS, in which the global research impact of what are known as the BRICK nations is explored. Over a ten year period, global research publications and R&D spending were studied in relation to the patent activity of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Korea. Bob Stembridge, the IP Analyst on the report, comments, “The technology coming out of the BRICK nations is certainly on the rise, and it’s important, I think, for governments to keep a close eye on technology coming out of those countries and to be aware of what’s going on and to track those developments.” Stembridge discusses global innovation and patent growth further in the podcast below.
