Espacenet: the world’s leading free patents database

We would like to welcome into our blog a new video-section about tools, news, curiosity and anything relevant linked to patents, which we are going to call simply “Patents world”.

The first video we introduce present a really interesting tool: Espacenet. It is basically the world’s leading free patents database, developed by the EPO (European Patents Office), which is more than a database: it is a world full of inventors and inspiring innovation.

Espacenet allows accessing to more than 80 million patents documents worldwide, containing information about technical improvements (such as applications, granted patents, translations, utility models, etc.) from 1836 to nowadays. It offers the possibility to search for Spanish Patents, Patents from any other European country, Patents PTC and patents worldwide.

Let’s see the presentation of the video below to discover more about this useful instrument.
