Patentometric analysis of the transfer of technology in Brazil between 2010 and 2018

Main Article Content



This article aims to analyze the profile of technology-based companies, transferring technology and innovating their processes, presenting a mapping of companies and potential sectors, so that the participation of universities and companies in the intellectual property process can be made feasible. Conceptual discussions about technology-based and innovation-based companies were presented and used to justify the analyzes found in this study. Among the methodological aspects, the research is exploratory and descriptive, with qualitative and quantitative treatment. For the purposes of the research, the search for information was done through the National Institute of Intellectual Property (INPI), through technological prospecting and patentometry. There were found patent applications, of which 353 applications were selected for analysis from 2010 to 2018. In the search, the keywords were used: "company+base+ technology" and, later, the research was expanded with the keywords: "company+technology", “companyandtechnology", to perceive changes in numerical terms and analysis within the validation criteria of a technology-based company. The results obtained were that although there are discussions about technology-based company concepts, innovation and technology transfer in the country , there is still a timid generation of innovations in the processes of technology-based companies. The technology-based companies resulting from this research with a higher incidence of innovation are those of manufacturing in general, noting that they do not have a clear understanding of what innovations they are capable of of developing to be able to transfer technology due to lack of: support to stimulate R & D, partnerships with the business sector and financial investments to seek innovation in their processes.
