Kyoto, Japan – February 17, 2023 – SCREEN Holdings Co., Ltd. has been selected as one of the Top 100 Global Innovators for 2023 by Clarivate. Based on Clarivate’s analysis of patent data, SCREEN has been recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies or institutions. This is the second time SCREEN has received this award, following its win in 2022.

Clarivate creates its list of the top 100 global innovators from patent data it possesses as one of the world’s leading information services companies. To compile this list, it analyzes and evaluates trends in intellectual property (IP) for companies and institutions in every country and region.

The evaluation process itself employs a two step approach. In the first, Clarivate identifies entities that have filed at least 500 patent applications since 2000 and that also have at least 100 inventions for which they have successfully registered patents in the preceding five years.* In the second step, Clarivate assesses each of these inventions and assigns scores based on four main factors: influence, success, globalization and technical distinctiveness.

SCREEN has continuously sought to create and develop new products and businesses based on three core areas of technology it has fostered over many decades, namely surface processing, direct imaging and image processing. It is also currently devising an IP strategy, including an IP portfolio strategy, that incorporates a composite analysis of both in-house and external IP information.

The IP strategy will join the company’s existing management, business and technology strategies. SCREEN expects the new approach will enhance its ability to build a business portfolio that reflects market trends in various areas from diverse perspectives. The strategy is part of SCREEN’s efforts to strengthen its IP capabilities by pursuing IP initiatives that are closely linked to each of its business and research and development fields.

Going forward, SCREEN intends to continue working as a “solution creator” that can generate new value for society. It is fully committed to undertaking research and development designed to resolve various issues faced by society and to further strengthening its IP initiatives intended to support these activities. The company’s core goal remains, as always, to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.

* The five year period from 2017 to 2021 for the 2022 awards.
