QUERY ON ESPACENET APPS FOR TABLET AND/OR SMART PHONES

Post by PATLIB-OBI » Thu Sep 07, 2017 7:03 am

Dear All,

Could you please let me know, whether apps for tablet and/or smart phones are available for accessing espacenet, especially for the needs of "hands on" exercises during workshops/seminars?
If yes, what are the minimum specifications required?

Thank you for your help.

Kind regards

Dear Ms Gaganatsou,

There are currently no apps for Espacenet however we have a mobile version of both Espacenet and of the European Patent Register accessible via the EPO’s mobile website (m.epo.org).

The search experience is as similar as possible to the desktop versions, but the mobile version is leaner and more streamlined. We provide basic searches, which work like "Smart search", and advanced searches, where you can combine criteria.

There are some limits. Currently, we can display no more than 100 search results, but we do let you know that there are more so that you can refine your query to find those that are most relevant.

In terms of data, since we use Open Patent Services (OPS) in the background, the collection is large, but not quite as large as in Espacenet. However, all the data available in the desktop European Patent Register is also available via the mobile search. The amount of data you can download daily is subject to the same limits as in the desktop versions.
Kind regards,
