• This paper aims to propose a structural equation model which relates the variables that determine the patent value. Even though some patent indicators have been directly used to infer the private or social value of innovations, the results suggest that patent value is a more complex variable that may be modeled as an endogenous unobservable variable in a firstand in a second-order model, and which depends respectively on three and four constructs. Such variables include the knowledge used by… CONTINUE READING
