Innovation TV launched

2 June 2014

The EPO has launched a smart TV app featuring stories about innovation and inventors.

Innovation TV is currently available in English, German and French for Samsung, Philips, Toshiba and LG* smart televisions. 

The app showcases videos about the finalists for the European Inventor Award as well as background films on the EPO and working at the Office. It will also broadcast the award ceremony for the European Inventor Award live on 17 June starting at 11.00 hrs CET.

"For the past few years, we have been using video on our website, in social media and at events like the European Inventor Award and have seen what an effective way it is to transport messages about technology and innovation," says Oswald Schröder, head of Communications at the EPO. "With our new app, we take these stories directly into people's livings rooms, giving them the chance to meet the people behind some of the world's most important inventions."
