A couple of weeks ago, the Yale School of Management released a report covering the under-representation of women inventors among patentees (http://ow.ly/vKCX30jHqzw). It is vital that we take steps to support women innovators, and I look forward to seeing an increase in the number of women obtaining patents for the important, industry and society-transforming inventions they are creating every day. Great to see that World IP Day is focusing this year on women inventors!
