Keywords: patents, intellectual property, agrarian sector, innovation
AbstractThis paper address the question, whether states’ level of participation and share in patents granted and patent activity development trend in different world’s regions is consistent with the sustainable development paradigm? Presently, this problem is very important and topical, not only due to the states’ and regions’ struggle for their economic position in the world, but also in the social and cultural dimension. The paper analyzes patent activity in the agrarian sector globally, in the context of the level and its trends by state group characterized by different level of development. This two-part analysis was performed at the macro level. The first part highlights the diminishing level of europe and north america in generating patents with a high rate of growth in asia. The second part of the paper documents low patent activity in the agrarian sector. Consequently, an attempt has been made to interpret the causes and effects of this phenomenon in the context of the drive to improve food security in the world, as an important element of sustainable development. To achieve the objective we used scientific literature and data collected by the world intellectual property organization (WIPO) and the world trade organization (WTO). The paper covers the years 2005 to 2016.
