The object is to identify the flux of information and get to know the socio-spatial and socioinstitutional dimensions of knowledge
in the process of innovation, and to be able to visualize the impact and cognitive relationships of the sources of information
used in the production of patents, as well as interactions and social cooperation that exists between the local innovative
agents of The State University of Campinas. The research is of an exploratory nature with a case study design, in order to
find out, by means of patentometric indicators, the flow and social relations characterized by cognitive and institutional
aspects of local and regional knowledge based on the production of the Institution’s patents.

Patenting and licensing is not only a significant method of university knowledge transfer, but also an important indicator
for measuring academic R&D strength and knowledge utilization. The methodologies of quantitative and qualitative analysis,
including a special patent h-index indicator to assess patenting quality, were used to examine university patenting worldwide. Analysis of university
patenting from 1998 to 2008 showed a significant overall global increase in which Chinese academia stands out: most of the
top 20 universities in patenting in 2008 were in China. However, a low rate of utilization of Chinese academic patents may
have roots in: (1) university research evaluation system encourages the patent production more, rather than the utilization;
(2) problems in the formal mechanisms for university technology transfer and licensing, (3) industry’s limited expectation
and receptive capabilities and/or (4) a mismatch between the interests of the two institutional spheres. The next action to
be taken by government, university and industry in China will be to explore strategies for improving academic patent quality
and industry take-up.

between science and technology, the research on ‘relationship between science and technology’ in technology diffusion has become one of the favourite topics in the field of patentometrics.
