Patent National

After you have applied for a patent at the Austrian Patent Office, the matter is formally and factually examined. In addition to the requirement of novelty and inventiveness, technical character (technicality) is another important necessity. This means that a certain technical task must be solved by certain technical means. Furthermore, the invention must be completely disclosed. This means that you must describe your invention in such a way that a person skilled in the art can carry it out. The application has to contain an exact description of the problem and your solution.
