YOUR EUROPEAN PATENT APPLICATION IN GOOD HANDS

– PATWORX EUROPEAN PATENT ATTORNEYS

By applying for a European patent, you may protect technical inventions that are new and are based on an inventive step. If the European Patent Office EPO finally grants a patent, your invention will be protected for a period of up to 20 years from the application date. Within this period the patent confers an exclusive right to exploit the invention. However, only technical inventions, i.e. no business methods, ideas, schemes or rules are accessible to patent protection.

  • A technical description of your invention
