Electric Vehicle Symposium & Exhibition
Attending EVS30 in Stuttgart and interested in patents?
The EPO at EVS30
9-11 October 2017, Stuttgart/Germany
People who work in rapidly expanding, active technological fields such as electric vehicle technologies have to make decisions at an early stage when developing new products. These will include how to protect the new products, and how to place them in comparison with the competitors.
As a patent applicant, you want a procedure that gives you confidence that your patent will withstand a challenge before the courts. And you want easy access to other people's patent applications, so that you can know at an early stage what they are innovating.
The European Patent Office (EPO) is one of the leading patent offices in the world and frequently comes top in surveys for the quality of its work. The EPO systematically delivers high legal certainty through a search, with written opinion, within six months of filing.
At EVS30 in Stuttgart, the EPO will be presenting the work it does to maintain its reputation as a high-quality patent office, including:
- rapid issue of the search report after the patent is filed
- inclusion of Asian documentation and standards in all search work
- accelerated patent examination on request
If you have questions about the work we do, come and visit the EPO's booth, where patent examiners specialising in electric vehicle technology will be able to answer them. Whether you have filed hundreds of patents or are still considering filing your first, the EPO is here to help you.
The EPO is also recruiting European nationals who are experts in the field of electric vehicles.
