THE GEORGIA TECH/RIETI INVENTOR SURVEY

In 2007, the Georgia Tech School of Public Policy (John Walsh, Project Director), sponsored by the Georgia Research Alliance/Kauffman Foundation and the Research Institute of Economics, Trade and Industry (RIETI), conducted the Georgia Tech Inventor Survey. This research was conducted in parallel with a sister survey in Japan, sponsored by RIETI and directed by Professor Sadao Nagaoka, Hitotsubashi University. Working papers and technical reports giving detailed results and comparisons between the US and Japan are now available below.

We would like to thank all of the inventors who gave their time to the survey. We deeply appreciate your cooperation.

If you have any comments or questions, please contact John Walsh: john.walsh@pubpolicy.gatech.edu.
