German Institutions Launch the Patents4Science Project to Create a Patent Knowledge Graph

FIZ Karlsruhe announced the following:

To investigate the need for patent knowledge and its potential use in research, FIZ Karlsruhe, in cooperation with the Leibniz Institute for Plasma Science and Technology e.V. (INP) in Greifswald, conducted a needs analysis by utilizing online surveys at several Leibniz institutes. While the results indeed confirmed the need for patent knowledge in research, they helped to identify major obstacles and gaps.

Based on this, the ‘Patents4Science’ project, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG), will now create over the next three years a patent-centric knowledge graph based on Linked Open Data as well as a modern information infrastructure for linking patent knowledge with scientific literature and other domain-specific information. As an initial step the Patent Knowledge Graph integrates domain-specific knowledge from three areas, namely: plasma technology, additive manufacturing and battery materials. The Patents4Science infrastructure will allow scientists to easily access and make use of essential information in patents such as descriptions of technical processes and devices, properties of materials and active pharmaceutical ingredients, and details of specific biomedical processes. As a result, researchers will gain access to new approaches and solutions, experiments or technical specifications that haven’t been published elsewhere via dedicated (semantic) information services.
