New collaboration: the Assisted Patent Search


How to protect your idea

SMEs and start-ups should be provided with the best conditions to make their innovations economically viable. This is the incentive for a collaboration between Innosuisse and the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI). The Assisted Patent Search is at the heart of the collaboration between Innosuisse and the IPI. As part of this service, together with an IPI patent expert, companies can put their idea or invention under the microscope, find out if it is new and how they may want to proceed.
