Abstract:

How to understand the forms of government in the inventive activity related to electric vehicles?? To answer this question, we have the patent information contained in the USPTO, 1976-2012 period. For this reason we study: i) the complexity, source and nature of technology; ii) agents (inventors, companies, partnerships, joint ventures, etc.); and iii) institutions (internal contracts, markets, intellectual property rights, etc.).

Some of the results are as follow: i) simple technologies are related to individual inventors; ii) the complex technologies are related to universities and research centers; iii) the company relate with simple and complex technologies. In addition, companies in partnership with other actors (universities, research centers or other companies) are related to complex technologies.
