The paper addresses the scope of the patent-system to facilitate coordination of
(technological) knowledge production among different actors. The coordination
function is rooted in the long discourse of the role of the patent system. However its
importance has reemerged as knowledge production processes evolve. The paper
starts from the position that ongoing patent reform initiatives need to take into
consideration this dimension of the patent system. The paper links the coordinative
role of patents to the analysis of networks of innovators in an 'industrial networks'
approach. Here, it addresses the need to develop empirical approaches that capture
this coordination function. The paper develops an empirical approach against this
backdrop using Community Innovation Survey (CIS) data for Norway.
