Granting intellectual property rights to your innovations is the task of the Austrian Patent Office, the central authority for industrial property law in Austria. Successful concepts and technical developments ‘invite’ imitations. Temporary intellectual property rights with a monopoly nature help with this. The Austrian Patent Office effectively provides you with security and, as the national competence centre, safeguards your legitimate interests. Patents, protection certificates and utility models protect your inventions, while registrations protect your trademarks and designs. Such a concentrated amount of expertise relating to industrial property law cannot be found anywhere else in Austria. In the Patent Office, over 200 experts are responsible for protecting the inventions, designs and trademarks of Austrian businesses. They examine each individual case in compliance with the strictest quality criteria and provide your products with the best possible protection.
