Welcome to the new epo.org pilot

We’re building a new improved epo.org to provide a better digital service for our users.

New epo.org

As the patent office for Europe, we are proud to deliver high-quality patents and efficient services that foster innovation, competitiveness and economic growth.

Offering a new vision for the EPO, the Strategic Plan 2023 outlines the actions and initiatives to be taken in order to deliver sustainability and excellence. One of the key goals of the Plan is to work towards a digital transformation and this includes developing epo.org to better address the needs of our users.

This pilot version of epo.org is the first step in this process. We welcome your feedback to improve the next stages.

You can go to the current epo.org at any time by clicking on the EPO logo.
