EPSRC The Future of Big Data Patent Analytics
Friday 3 March 2017



The Innovation and Intellectual Property group, within the Centre of Technology Management, at the Institute for Manufacturing (IfM), Department of Engineering, University

of Cambridge, seeks expressions of interest for attendance at a one-day workshop on “The

Future of Patent Analytics: A foresight study of breakthrough enabling technologies”.


The aim of the workshop is to identify future technologies, with the potential to deliver

breakthroughs for substantially better analyzing and visualizing patent data to enable

previously untapped use cases, through the engagement of academic and industry.


Big Data Patent Analytics is an area which stretches across several EPSRC themes, such as the ‘productive nation’ theme with the introduction of the next generation of innovative and

disruptive technologies, digital transformation, and the ‘connected nation’ theme for

enabling a competitive and data-driven economy.


The project objectives will:

  • Help improve patent analytics for more effective exploitation of the worldwide largest repository of technological information to enable new use cases.
  • Develop a public technology roadmap to facilitate collaboration and coordinated action of actors in the patent analytics community to further develop the capabilities for analyzing patent data.
  • Reflect on the technology roadmap and the development of future technologies tosolve outstanding and long term problems.
  • Bring together relevant stakeholders in a research setting to enable new collaborations, thereby enhance patent analytics progress.
