• Kyocera receive 2015 Top 100 Global Innovators award

        • Kyocera Corporation have been recognised by Thomson Reuters as one of the 2015 Top 100 Global Innovators for the second consecutive year and were presented a trophy at their Japanese HQ.

          The Thomson Reuters Top 100 Global Innovators awards have been presented annually since 2011 and recognise organisations at the centre of global innovation by analysing their developments in intellectual property and patents based on their own data and original methodology. 

          Junichi Jinno, Senior Executive Officer and GM of Corporate Legal and Intellectual Property Group at Kyocera said, “we are grateful to be named a 2015 Top 100 Global Innovator for the second consecutive year, which is in part due to the consistent support of our patent & law firms and each of our product divisions.”

          The methodology to identify the Top 100 included four areas of criteria including volume, success rate, global reach and influence.

          Volume: all organisations with 100 or ore patented new inventions in the past five years are included

          Success rate: measures the ration of inventions described in published applications to inventions protected with granted patents in the last five years.

          Global reach: number of basic inventions that have quadrilateral patents in their patent families in China, Europe, Japan and the U.S.

          Influence: number of citations to the organisation’s patents by other companies over the last five years.

          Junichi added, “innovation continues to be a vital company asset and these influential patents are important to protect further global business development.”

          Kyocera currently hold a Global Intellectual Property Partners Meeting with all their patent offices in five countries. In April this year, they will be adding a third European branch branch to their existing two branches in U.S. and China.
