The Austrian Patent Office offers this service to 200 students working on their final projects.
Be one of them!
For the Patent Scan, our experts require a brief description of the technical statement of task or special aspects thereof. Remember: the more specific you can be in defining and formulating your field of technology, the more relevant the patent documents we can select for you. After a worldwide search of the patent literature, you will get written feedback – perhaps you are already heading for a new patent! You also get a comprehensive overview of the patent literature and at the same time you are starting to learn the “language of patents”.
The Patent Scan only works if you provide a technical statement of task; we cannot carry out searches for you on generally non patentable items (e.g. software) or economic aspects (e.g. business methods). Your application for the Patent Scan must be submitted not later than three months after the start of your master’s or diploma project and twelve months after the start of your dissertation.
This service costs you precisely nothing!
In about 4 months you will have your Patent Scan and you can use it to "pimp" your final project!
