Case studies


The Derwent World Patents Index is a comprehensive database of the inventions described by the world’s patents. The DWPI team captures patent publications from 59 authorities, translates them into English, corrects errors, normalizes inventor and assignee data, and indexes the record using 322 technology classes.

Additionally, DWPI subject matter experts create a descriptive title and abstract for each invention family (58m+ to date) that clearly states the invention’s novelty, use and advantage. DWPI makes it easier for you to find, review and analyze the most relevant patent publications.

With our patent intelligence solutions, we connect many different types of patent data to help you capture a more accurate, more comprehensive view of your patent landscape.

Some of the additional data that we connect to the patent record in Derwent Innovation and Innography includes predicted legal status, normalized ultimate parent / assignee, whether the patent is involved in litigation from over 140+ jurisdictions, and whether the patent is assigned EP B with Unitary Effect. The applicable DWPI title and abstract is also connected to the patent record.

Innography also includes the proprietary PatentStrength score. PatentStrength considers 30+ factors and compares these factors against 145m+ global patent publications to produce a normalized score of 0-100, which helps you quickly identify the most important patents.
