Could you please helps us in identifying potential collaborators relevant to our research area?

Collaboration network mapping is used by SPA clients to understand high value inventors or groups active in specific technology areas. Such information is used by SPA’s R&D clients for recruiting talent, tracking specific inventors and their progress, and identifying potential collaborators in their Open Innovation programs. SPA conducts such analyses based on patent information and scientific publication data. Such information is combined with SPA’s proprietary ranking algorithms to extract high-value records which are then mapped to identify high quality research groups and talent.
