Good afternoon! We invite you to take our 8th Global Patent & IP Trends Survey before it closes next week. Patent professionals responding on behalf of companies and universities in the United States and Europe are encouraged to participate below. The survey should take no more than 15 minutes to complete:

After compiling the survey’s responses, we will issue an IP indicator report that identifies the trends having the greatest impact on the foreign filing and translation strategies of patentees around the world.

As a thank you for your participation, we will send you the report before released to the general public. You can also download The 2016 Global Patent & IP Trends Indicator here. 

If you have any questions regarding this project, please don’t hesitate to email us at
