For the seventh year running, Clarivate Analytics (formerly Reuters), has ranked the CEA among the top 100 global innovators. Only two other research organizations are on the list: Fraunhofer in Germany and ITRI in Taiwan. The rest of the ranking is populated by companies, including six in France: Alstom, Arkema, Safran, Saint Gobain, Thales, and Total.
The global top 100 is based on the organizations’ patent activity and intellectual property strategy, including the number of patent filings and extensions and the success rate. The CEA is particularly active, with 762 priority patents filed last year, a slight increase from the 743 patents filed in 2016. Grenoble is by far the CEA’s leading center, filing more than three quarters of the patents.
