In this working paper we aim to investigate the international pattern of innovation in Norway as it is revealed in patent data from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The empirical section consists of four parts. We start by considering innovative activities in Norway in an international perspective, and continue by focusing on the growth in patents and their international connectedness as far as US patents involving actors residing in Norway are concerned. Then we investigate the development concerning the international dispersion of co-inventors in these patents and the distribution of co-inventors across countries. Finally, focus is on the top patenting firms in Norway and the international dispersion of co-inventors in their US patents.
