▶️ Title : The commercialization of DoD-SBIR patents : A counterfactual analysis


▶️ Abstract : 
🔹 The paper proposes a novel, web-based approach to innovation policy evaluation.
🔹 The approach overcomes several limitations affecting established valuation methods used in the literature. We implement it to study the impact of the U.S. DoD-SBIR program on technology commercialization.
🔹 We start by identifying the universe of USPTO patents that acknowledge support by the SBIR program.
🔹 We then track whether these patents are mentioned in relation to commercial products in a virtual patent marking page available on the recipient’s website.
🔹 We interpret the latter event as signal of commercialization.
🔹 Finally, we create a group of control patents and we compare the commercialization probability of SBIR-funded and control inventions.
🔹 The results support the view that the SBIR program is quite effective at stimulating the commercialization of federally-funded scientific discoveries.
