Solution Title: Patent Quality Index

Category: Patent Quality Initiative

Contributor: University of Pennsylvania School of Law

Abstract: The Patent Quality Index initiative will create a unified, numeric index to assess the quality of patents and patent applications. The effort will be directed by Professor R. Polk Wagner of the University of Pennsylvania with support from IBM and others and will be an open, public resource for the patent system.

The index will be constructed with extensive community input, backed by statistical research and will become a dynamic, evolving tool with broad applicability for inventors, participants in the marketplace and the USPTO.
