The patent system is an important weapon for countries in the era of knowledge economy to protect their innovation ability (Chen, 2004). The establishment, implementation and application of the patent system are inseparable from compound and professional talents. As the training and export base for talents, the patent education in colleges and universities is of great significance to the promotion and protection of national innovation capabilities (Matthews, 2009). Developed countries attach great importance to patent education (Zhang & Wende. 2007), who make full use of various resources, create the awareness to promote patent protection and use patent education as an important means to improve international competitiveness.

With the development of the "Thirteenth Five-Year Plan", China has placed greater emphasis on building an innovative economy. Whether it is science and technology, management and other innovations are inseparable from the support of the patent system (Dong, Li, Chen & Zheng, 2002). For research universities which focus on the cultivation of students' innovative ability, the implementation of patent education can cultivate a large number of compound talents with the awareness of patent protection and corresponding capability for the country, which has far-reaching significance for China's scientific and technological progress (Watt, 2007). With the introduction of a series of patent education related policies, many regions regard the improvement of the innovation ability of patent talents as an important task. However, on the whole, the development of patent education in research universities in China is still relatively slow and there are many problems. This paper investigates the development of patent education in research universities in a province, analyzes the existing problems and seeks the room for improvement, which hopes to play a promotion effect in the theoretical research and practice of patent education in research universities in China.

Research Background

Patent Education

Patent education refers to a series of activities of imparting knowledge of relevant laws and regulations, system and culture of patent through a series of educational methods to enable the educatees to have the awareness and ability of patent protection (Zhao, 2006). The content of patent education is shown in Table 1:

Patent Education in Research Universities

The patent education in research universities refers to the imparting of relevant legal knowledge of patent and the cultivation of the practical application ability based on the professional background of students with the use of the university as an educational platform. Students who receive patent education can be divided into two types: one is law majors, for whom the patent education is part of their professional education curriculum; the other is students in other majors. Their awareness and ability of patent protection can be improved through the patent education (Ribeiro Nogueira Ferraz, Quoniam, Reymond, & Maccari, 2016; Ubaid & Abdel-Razek, 2018; Jiang, Wang, Hui & Zhang, 2016).
