However, it is not easy to obtain both necessary and valuable information in the sea of information. This is even more so for SMEs that do not have enough funds and human resources. This study aims to suggest an SME friendly patent recommendation service based on the result of R and D information demand analysis of technologically innovative enterprises in order to support SMEs for R and D.
