Tang, Xiaoyun, Zhao, Guiqin and Cai, Huifen (2014) Is International Technology Innovation Truly International? Evidence of Comparative Study on Index of Patent Internationalization, 1981-2008. In: AIB 2014 Annual Meeting, 23rd-26th June, 2014, Vancouver, Canada.

In this study we examine the indicators of patent internationalization reflecting better on the current important
content of the techno-globalism utilization, the production of globalization and global cooperation, etc. Based on
the measurement of technological internationalization on patents data between OECD countries and non-OECD
countries (or regions), with the comparative analysis of the influence of the trading, investment and the scale
of a country, R&D intensity and three proximities (including the technical, the social and culture and
geographical proximities) on technological innovation internationalization. These results are not similar based on
different patents data from USPTO and EPO, and the factors affecting internationalization of technology in
OECD and non-OECD countries are different. It is a long way to go for the non-OECD or developing countries to
engage/realize the real technology innovation globalization. The findings contribute to our knowledge of
technology innovation internationalization and also have important managerial and policy implications.
