The inventory includes data on 295 patents and 18,158 publications resulting from FP7 funded projects in the field of ICT (ICT theme within Cooperation Programme and eInfrastructures within Capacities Programme).

The period covered is 2007 - 2013. Patents and publications have been reported by project coordinators responding to annual surveys carried out by the European Commission - DG CONNECT. Outputs reported by participants have been validated in EPO Espacenet, PATSTAT and Elsevier’s Scopus databases by UNU-MERIT – Maastricht University under the service contract SMART 2011/0039 funded by the European Commission - DG CONNECT. The data has been used to derive the rates of output per €10 million of EC funding
