Assisted patent searches at a lower cost for a further six months

10.12.2020 | Patents

Innovative SMEs and start-ups continue to be seriously challenged by the coronavirus crisis. The Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) would like to continue to support them in this arduous marathon, which is why it is continuing its offer of assisted patent searches and assisted patent landscape analyses for CHF 100 instead of CHF 300 up until 30 June 2021.


The demand for these services has increased significantly since the IPI started offering them for free at the start of the crisis and since the fee was reduced in June. This demonstrates the continuing high level of innovation in Switzerland, which the IPI wants to further support with this initiative.
