There are a couple of possibilities to protect your invention abroad: Filing directly in the country of interest, filing a European application, or filing an international one.
- Don’t miss the priority deadline when you extend protection abroad. The 12-month deadline begins the date of your national patent application filing. During this period, you can file for a patent abroad and claim the date of your first application.
