Every year, the European Patent Office (EPO)  awards inventions with proven economic and societal impacts in the categories ‘industry’, ‘SMEs’, ‘research/universities’, ‘non-European countries’ and ‘lifetime achievement’. Technopolis has been, since 2011, repeatedly contracted by the EPO to perform background analyses and valuations of the impacts of patents and inventions nominated for the European Inventor Award  (EIA). Using a methodological mix combining patent analysis and economic analysis, the results of Technopolis´ investigations have been feeding into the decision process of the international juries as well the creation of media and background material.

For the current edition of the EIA, please visit the respective sections of the homepage of the EPO.
