SCREEN Holdings Co., Ltd. has been selected as one of the Top 100 Global Innovators for 2022 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.
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 for companies and institutions in every country and region. The evaluation process itself employs a two step approach. While the first uses the basic volume of patents as its criteria, the second takes into account the candidates’ influence, success and globalization as well as the range of technology fields in which they operate.
Based on its corporate philosophy of “Sharing the Future”, “Human Resource Development” and “The Pursuit of Technology”, SCREEN has developed core technologies in the three key areas of surface processing, direct imaging and image processing over a period of many decades. Using this foundation, the company has continuously sought to understand how its technologies can help to address the issues facing society and to create and develop products and businesses to resolve these challenges. In addition, while actively respecting and protecting intellectual property rights, it has been engaged in related activities 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 foster innovation and to further strengthening the creation of intellectual property to support these activities. The company’s core goal remains, as always, to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society.
