When revisiting the academic study of national innovations systems of countries, most research focuses on the volume of technological assets, such as patents, produced by a certain country. Throughout this project, in order to characterize the innovation or capability of nation, the focus relied on the usage of field related term-pairs. This allowed us to obtain a more nuanced view on how different countries and regions conduct research on a certain industry topic. Although the volume of patents is a good indicator of the intensity of the research from a certain country (Furman et al., 2002), it fails to describe exactly how this country innovates. Furthermore, the analysis of industry terms allows for a quantitative comparison of countries, which the volume of patents does not. For these reasons, it is fair to deduce that in order to fully understand the nuances of a country’s research ecosystem, more focus should be put on industry specific terminology.
