[NEW REPORT] - Trends and characteristics of U.S. women inventors @USPTO

I am happy to be part of a team working on a report on the trends and characteristics of U.S. women inventors named on U.S. patents granted from 1976 through 2016.
THE USPTO report “Progress and Potential: A profile of women inventors on U.S. patents,” , issued by the USPTO’s Office of the Chief Economist, shows that women still comprise a small minority of patented inventors and highlights an untapped potential of women to spur innovation in the United States.
The full report can be found online at

Workshop on Economics of Dispute Resolution

X Workshop on “Institutions, Individual Behavior and Economic Outcomes” - Session on Economics of Dispute Resolution - University of Corsica
The scope of the event is to give participants the opportunity to present their work in progress to an audience of interested peers and get valuable feedback for improving their ongoing research. Both the format and the location of the workshop have been chosen to provide an ideal setting for promoting knowledge sharing and social interactions conducive to collaborative research networks.
The session will bring together researchers working in the broad field of litigations and disputes about patents, copyrights, business contracts and so on, from an empirical legal studies perspective. The purpose of the session is to provide a platform for cutting-edge research that would enrich, refine, and challenge our understanding of justice, courts' functioning and litigation process.
