IPscore is a tool to evaluate patents, technologies and research projects. To ensure the confidentiality of your data, you can use it offline.

IPscore allows you to analyse, visualise and document the strengths and weaknesses of patents and research projects. You can customise the assessment factors used in the analysis.

With IPscore you can:

  • evaluate patent portfolios, individual patent applications and granted patents
  • analyse complex patented technologies
  • assess research projects before filing a patent application
