Virtual PNZ!

PNZ Logo

Due to the current situation, our services and consultations will be available to you virtually from Wednesday, 18.3.2020 - by telephone or video chat.

This also applies to the initial inventor consultation, which, in consultation with the patent attorneys involved, will only take place by telephone in the coming weeks. At the moment, patent, utility model, trademark and design applications can only be accepted via our deadline mailbox in front of the building of the University Library.

Your searches for intellectual property rights or standards can be managed by us online. Or you can order your search from us using our order forms.

If you have any questions, we will be happy to help you - by telephone on +49 241 80-94480, +49 241 80-94481, +49 241 80-93601 or by e-mail
