CSIRO listed among World’s Top Innovators
CSIRO has been listed by Thomson Reuters as one of the world’s top 25 innovators in the government sector. The ranking process considered 600 institutions worldwide and looked at each institution’s filed patents, how often those applications were granted, how many patents were filed to global patent offices in addition to local authorities, and how often the patents were cited by other patents. Candidates were also evaluated in terms of the number of articles published by researchers in academic journals, how often those papers were cited by patents, and how many articles featured a co-author from industry. Finally, it trimmed the list so that it only included government-run or -funded organizations, and then ranked them based on their performance.
