Get to the crux of the issue together with a patent expert from the IPI. You will receive valuable search results that will help you make decisions about your idea or invention.
The IPI offers various types of assisted search so that you can find the right one for you:
We offer Assisted Patent Searches to innovative SMEs, start-ups, individual inventors and public research institutes. A patent expert will provide information on patenting and together you will search in various patent databases. In this Assisted Patent Search, you will gain an initial overview of the state of the art (also known as prior art) and assess whether your idea is new. The results serve as an ideal basis for your next steps, such as applying for a patent or meeting with investors.
We offer Assisted Patent Landscape Analyses to innovative SMEs, start-ups, individual inventors and public research institutes. Together, you and a patent expert will identify a core set of patent documents from your technology sector and then analyse the data. With the Assisted Patent Landscape Analysis, you will acquire a solid basis for your business decisions.
