description: The identification enables construction of social networks based on patent co-authorship. We will eventually provide descriptive statistics of individual and collaborative variables and illustrated examples of networks for an individual, an organization, a technology, and a region. The data and code will be publically available for community use and improvement and will enable updating as frequently as new patents are issued.
