In this study, we contribute to the evaluation of the performance of the German science and research system by analyzing the dynamics of transnational patent filings of German inventors in an international comparison over the past 20 years. Besides country-specific analyses, we further differentiate our findings by 38 high-technology fields including aggregate categories (high-level, leading-edge and less R&D intensive). In addition to country comparisons, which are analyzed in each years' report of this series trends, we also provide international co-patenting trends, dig deeper into patent activities of the German federal states and look at patent dynamics in public research. This year's largest focus is set on trends in EUIPO trademark filings, where we apply a newly developed classification to get a more detailed look a field-specific trends in trademarks.
