About the PAtLink dataset
The overarching aim of PAtLink project is to create and free of charge distribute a comprehensive matching file between patent and trademark information and organization information. The matching file will consist of the relationship between a unique patent/trademark identifier and a unique organization identifier. Patlink project is financed by Vinnova. The current files are the first series of information on patent and trademarks. The files will be updated annually.
The patent file includes all patents belonging to Swedish firms from 1990-2018. The patent data are extracted from PATSTAT and organization number are extracted from SERRANO database. The unique identifier from PATSTAT (appln_nr_epodoc) allow matching data with further information regarding patents. The organization number allow matching data with SERRANO database to receive the accounting information of firms. Patent files have been updated three times to include patents in more recent years ("Second Patent set online", "Third patent set online" , "Forth patent set online"). The final update has been performed in Winter 2022.
The trademark file include all trademarks belonging to Swedish firms from 1990-2016 registered in the Swedish Patent and Registeration Office (PRV). The trademark data are extracted from PRV and organization number are extracted from SERRANO database. The unique identifier from PRV (ApplicationNumber) allow matching data with further information regarding trademark. The organization number allow matching data with SERRANO database to receive the accounting information of firms.
