Who are the Stars? Evidence from a Sample of UK Academic Inventor

Work in progress (with C.Lawson)
Paper presented at Final Dime Conference, Enid Conference, Epip Conference, ESF APE-INV Workshop.
Here a preliminary version.


Abstract
This paper explores the characteristics of persistent academic inventors and how they are  influenced by the attributes of the researcher and of the first invention. Using a novel dataset on 622 UK academic inventors we find that the quality of the first invention is the best predictor for subsequent participation in the patenting process. Further, researchers that were trained at universities that had already established commercialisation units have a higher propensity to patent persistently. Researchers that gained first patenting experience in industry, however, are less likely to continue patenting once they entered academia.
