Annual Report 2014

Highlights of 2014

Last year we managed to substantially improve access to Asian patent information while consolidating patent data from around the world. Bringing together diverse information about related patents to one place is now becoming a reality, which is good news for applicants and inventors. Significant progress was also made in preparatory work for the unitary patent.
