… improving access to world’s largest free collection of patent documents

The European Patent Office (EPO) has today [19 November 2019] released the new Espacenet, a substantially revised and improved version of the Office’s patent information search tool. New Espacenet’s state-of-the-art features and enhanced functionality will make it even easier for users to conduct patent searches and access over 110 million patent documents from all over the world free-of-charge. […]

The latest version of Espacenet offers several new features, including:

  • A dynamic query builder for easier searching
  • A richer, cleaner and quicker result list
  • Results filtering
  • An improved legal status overview covering the entire patent family
  • Responsive design for searching across devices

The new filtering tool shows the most frequently occurring classifications, applicants, inventors, authorities, and allows users to refine a query for improved search results. The “Advanced search” feature is flexible and dynamic, and empowers users to build customised, complex Boolean queries combining a wide range of bibliographic fields while graphically visualising the logical relations. Users can now switch between the “Advanced search” and “Smart search” modes at any time without losing a search.

Try new Espacenet.
