European King of Patents

The great innovative power of German companies can be seen in their number of patents: In 2016, more than 18,728 German patent applications were approved by the European Patent Office, almost twice as many as French and British applications combined. Germany also leads Europe in triadic patents (series of corresponding patents filed at the European Patent Office (EPO) , the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) and the Japanese Patent Office(JPO)). In 2016, with about 68 patents per million inhabitants, Germany came in third behind Switzerland and Japan.
