Description

  •  28/05/2019

Number of nanotechnology patent applications (by priority year) filed with the European Patent Office (EPO). Nanotechnology-related patents are defined as those with IPC codes B82B and B82Y.

Data for the last year are provisional. Significant revisions are expected because the procedures for patent applications are very long and several years are necessary to have final data.
