We are proud to announce that we have released the CAPPA dataset as open data. The CAPPA dataset contains anonymised information on the career paths of patent attorneys that are registered with the European Patent Office (EPO) tracking their employment from 2008 to 2018. It consists of four different sub-datasets (Attorney Data Frame, Employer Data Frame, Change Data Frame, and Career Path Data Frame) that are composed for specific information needs. The dataset has been computed, cleaned and made consistent based on publicly available patent records that are available through the EPO.
We have not only released the dataset, but a tutorial as well.
The creation of the CAPPA dataset has been funded by the Academic Research Programme of the European Patent Office under the grant agreement number 2017/8405.
