On the occasion of the seventh "National Science and Technology Workers Day" on May 5, the "National Science and Technology Innovation Top 30 Index Report 2023" was released in Beijing. The report is jointly researched and compiled by the August Gua Innovation Research Institute, the Institute of Science and Technology Information of the Beijing Academy of Science and Technology and the 21st Century Innovation Think Tank.

This is the fifth consecutive year that the August Melon Innovation Institute has released the Report. The Report focuses on micro-innovation subjects such as enterprises, universities and research institutions, and continues to take the patent information of the Innovation Brain as the core element, while referring to official data such as the Ministry of Science and Technology, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Education, the State Administration for Market Regulation and the State Intellectual Property Office, as well as relevant data of industry associations. Through scientific evaluation and in-depth analysis, the top 500 national science and technology innovation enterprises, top 50 national science and technology innovation universities, and top 50 national science and technology innovation research institutions were selected.

The "Report" shows that Huawei, State Grid, and Zhuhai Gree are among the top three. The number of patent authorizations of the top 500 enterprises has been increasing year by year, and the number of PCT patent applications in the past three years has reached nearly 8,4, which has played a leading role in driving and leading domestic innovation subjects to participate in global competition.

From the perspective of regional distribution, among the top 500 enterprises, there are 374 in the eastern region, accounting for 75%. From the perspective of provinces, 112 in Beijing, 102 in Guangdong Province and 47 in Shanghai rank in the top three, and the sum of the three provinces accounts for more than 50%.

From the perspective of funds, the proportion of enterprises with a registered capital of more than 1 million yuan has reached 91%, indicating that sufficient financial support is an important guarantee for scientific and technological innovation. From the perspective of ownership types, the total number of central enterprises and state-owned enterprises is 248, and 252 other types of enterprises, showing a development trend of parallel progress.

From the perspective of industry distribution, the top 500 enterprises are mainly concentrated in the manufacturing field, but the national strategic emerging industry represented by aerospace, artificial intelligence and new energy vehicles has begun to have scale advantages. In addition, among the top 500 enterprises, a total of 16 national-level specialized and special new "little giant" enterprises and 41 manufacturing single champion demonstration enterprises were shortlisted.

The top 50 national science and technology innovation universities are represented by Zhejiang University, Tsinghua University and Shanghai Jiao Tong University, and most of the patent applications of the top 50 universities exceed 5000,40, of which more than 10000% have more than 10,15000 patent applications, about 8000% of the universities have more than <>,<> patent applications, and the number of authorizations exceeds <>,<>.

From the perspective of regional distribution, universities in the eastern region are the most active in innovation, with a total of 30 selected, accounting for 60%. From the perspective of provinces, Beijing has a total of 10 universities on the list, ranking first, Jiangsu Province 9, ranking second, and Sichuan Province 4, ranking third. In addition, Shanghai, Shaanxi, Guangdong and Hubei provinces each have three universities in the ranking, ranking joint fourth.

From the perspective of industry distribution, the special equipment manufacturing industry (C35) has the largest number of patents, accounting for more than 22%, followed by the instrumentation manufacturing industry (C40), metal products, machinery and equipment repair industry (C43) and general equipment manufacturing industry (C34). This shows that the R&D direction of the top 50 universities is concentrated in the high-end equipment manufacturing industry, while the layout of software and information technology service industry still needs to be strengthened.

It is understood that August melon is a full-chain scientific and technological innovation service institution invested by state-owned funds, providing scientific and technological information retrieval and analysis and scientific and technological consultation before research and development; R&D intellectual property application evaluation, high-value patent mining, cultivation, layout, domestic and foreign intellectual property application protection, transaction operation, patent navigation, patent analysis; The transformation and evaluation of scientific and technological achievements after R&D is based on the innovation chain and focuses on digital intelligence services in the whole process of scientific and technological innovation.
