State of the art search / Technology survey


State of the art search is an in-depth report overview of a technology domain. The state of the art search for patents and NPL (Non-Patent Literature), also known as a technology survey, is aiming at patent departments, R&D, start-ups and inventors and will allow them to review other available solutions, competitors, potential infringements as well as identify potential novelty features.

The search specification will normally be wider than a Patentability or Freedom to Operate search and the report will include a wide range of solutions from both patents and non-patents publications. As this is a tailor-made search you can discuss with us how to formulate the search in the best way to get the optimal technology coverage for your company.
