What is the current state of technology, and how is it relevant to your product?

If your company is thinking about entering into a new area of technology, a State of the Art search can lay the foundation for making critical market decisions based on competitive intelligence. Use the results as a framework for designing innovative products and processes. To make informed decisions about the future, you need to study the present.

Why you should conduct a State of the Art search:

  • Research and development decisions
  • Competitive intelligence

Objective of a State of the Art search:

  • To provide you with a clear picture of the current patent literature scene in a general or specific area of technology

IP.com’s search coverage includes:

  • Patents
  • Published patent applications
  • Optional, relevant non-patent literature

You only need to provide:

  • Time to spend with one of our team members to help us properly define the scope and target of your search; we encourage a phone call or face-to-face meeting
  • A range of technology descriptions, including:
    • Disclosures
    • Patents
    • Patent applications
    • Product descriptions
    • Chemical structure(s) and/or composition(s)
    • Presentations

Turnaround time is usually quick, but ultimately depends on the specifications you provide.
