Over 120 million documents in Espacenet

Post by EPO / Patent Information » Wed May 27, 2020 2:02 pm

Patent information from the European Patent Office (EPO) encompasses over 120 million documents!

You can access the data via the EPO’s products and services such as
  • Global Patent Index,
  • Espacenet,
  • European Patent Register,
  • Linked open EP data, and/or
  • PATSTAT Online.
Of course EPO patent data is also available in the form of bulk data or via two different web-services if you wish to develop your own data search and analysis tools.
Kind regards,

The Patent Information User Support Team
