Abstract: EU policy has tended to support university patent ownership. Some critics state that such support wrongly takes US as a benchmark, because, including university patent inventions, the EU would appear as productive as the US. We add public research organisations (PROs) into the analysis, to consider the public research system as a whole, since in some countries PROs are intertwined with universities. We describe and explain university and PRO patent ownership accounting for national differences with time series data. It ratifies that the EU is not lagging behind US but that they are simply different (even if studying only patent ownership and not patent invention).
