At PIUG 2017 in Atlanta the EPO presented, for the first time, some preliminary findings from our survey on the role of patent information in the innovation process.

Main findings of the survey

  • 70% of the innovators who took part in the survey use patent information as a source of information.
  • 72% of them rate patent information as important or very important for their innovation work.
