Do you know what a patent landscape is?

Everyone who orders a patent landscape seems to have a clear picture of what they would like to receive and expect that everyone else – patent department, patent attorneys, information specialists, share the same clear picture. That creates a lot of challenges since even though we are experienced we tend to forget that there might be different views.

Our ambition during this year is to develop landscape report formats that will simplify the whole ordering and execution process for everyone involved. Additionally, we are also looking into the jungle of patent metrics to select the most appropriate metrics for different reports.

We are doing this in collaboration with clients. If you are interested in knowing more or taking part as a reviewer, please contact Máté András Kondor ( or Alessandro Bosco (
