IPscore® 2.2 is a tool for evaluation of patents and technological development projects. It
provides both qualitative and quantitative evaluation in the form of a financial forecast showing
the net present value of the evaluated technology. The Danish Patent and Trademark Office developed IPscore® 2.0, in collaboration with Professor Jan Mouritsen, the Copenhagen Business School and a number of Danish companies. The European Patent Office purchased the tool from the Danish Patent and Trademark Office. IPscore® 2.2, developed by the European Patent Office, is a multilingual and slightly improved version. IPscore® 2.2 is made available to users free of charge in order to support the patent strategy of companies, mainly SMEs and to steer the volume of applications by eliminating potentially “worthless” applications.
