  <dc:description>The 3PFL database links information on patented inventions and scientific publications related to a public procurement contract or a research grant awarded by the U.S. Federal Government to detailed contract-level/grant-level information (e.g., awarding agency, recipient organization, award size). We have combined data from multiple sources, including (but not limited to) the United States Patent and Trademark Office bulk database, the Federal Procurement Database System, the Award Submission Portal (ASP), and the European Patent Office's PATSTAT database. We also provide a link to the scientific publications associated with these patents. The 3PFL database provides rich and original information that opens the door to novel empirical research in the economics of innovation and science. </dc:description>
  <dc:description>The tables  07_grantee_information and  09_paper_information.csv (for NIH research grant related publications) are in a preliminary version and will be updated in future releases.</dc:description>
