New public Espacenet

The EPO has launched a new version of the Espacenet database that is richer and friendlier.

Espacenet, the European Patent Office (EPO) online searchable database is now very well known to the public. It contains more than 100 million documents.

The EPO has a new version of its program in beta version. It aims to enrich the patent searching experience with a more intuitive tool that is dynamic, portable and accessible. It also has new advanced functions, such as:

  • Image display
  • Intelligent algorithm for classifying the results
  • Filtering function for the most frequent classifications, applicants, inventors, etc.
  • Improved view of the patent's legal status
  • Options of complex Boolean searches.

Users are invited to test the new Espacenet and share their comments with the EPO.
