PATENTOMETRIC ANALYSIS OF THE PROCESS TECHNOLOGIES OF COMPANHIA SIDERÚRGICA NACIONAL (CSN)
This article aims at profiling the technological development of the productive processes of the Companhia Siderúrgica Nacional (CSN). Thus, we analyze, through a patentometric approach, the patent applications or utility model of th CSN, between 1971 and 2009, classifying them in product technologies and process technologies. The study showed that 60% of such deposits relate to process technologies. We conclude that there is a strong difference between patenting standard CSN pre- and post-privatization.
