2000-11-07 Ecofin lists "number of patents" among "performance indicators" for "Innovation & Resarch"

They list a set of performance indicators here, which includes a simple item: patents under "Innovation and Research:"

I've snipped the indicators, except under Innovation and Research. It appears that they are simply taking the number of patents as an indicator!
