CHI Research, Inc.

CHI Research, Inc. announces the availability of its Regional Tech-Line Patent Profiles covering technology trends through 2001 for US metropolitan areas (available now), US states, and countries (both scheduled to be released during April). They provide technology indicators based on US patents granted in the last ten years to inventors residing in those regions.

Researchers can compare regions by technological strength and impact, and identify technology hot spots, areas where the technology base is growing fast or with a shrinking commitment to technology, technologies where regional companies are innovating quickly, and the contribution that science makes to technological development in a city, state, or country.

Indicators include number of patents, growth in patenting, technology distribution, patent impact (Current Impact Index [CII]), technological strength, speed of innovation (Technology Cycle Time [TCT]), importance to subsequent technology (cites received per patent), linkage to science, and science strength. 

CHI Research is an internationally recognized research consultancy specializing in the development and analysis of technology and science indicators. CHI's indicators are used by corporate and public clients throughout the world.
