>[28.May.19] Patents – New phase of prioritization program of S&T applications
The S&T Patents pilot-project, which allows to accelerate the examination of patent applications filed by Science and Technology Institutions (S&Ts), entered its third phase, and will receive up to 100 requests for entering the program until 31.May.2020.
The main alterations in relation to the previous phases is the loosening of requirements to request for accelerated examination. S&Ts will no longer need to present statement of interest in the industry, proof of technology maturity level or patent application from a same family.
Each applicant can apply to enter for one application per month, except on the last months of the project.
