About this event
AustrianStartups Virtual Office Hours with PATENTAMT: an opportunity for you to connect with our experts during our FREE of cost 1:1 consulting sessions.



The experts at the Austrian Patent Office provide start-up companies with advice and assistance in dealing with their intellectual property. This saves time and provides security as well as the tools for a safe entry into national and international markets.


Such a concentrated amount of expertise relating to industrial property law cannot be found anywhere else in Austria. In the Patent Office, over 200 experts are responsible for protecting the inventions, designs, and trademarks of Austrian businesses. They examine each individual case in compliance with the strictest quality criteria and provide your products with the best possible protection.


As a Patent Cooperation Treaty (PCT) authority, the Austrian Patent Office is one of the best centers for the protection of intellectual property in the world and has been since 1979. In our role as an International Searching and Examining Authority, we create over 1000 international search reports each year.




Hildegard Etz did her Ph.D. in Genetics and Microbiology before starting to work as a patent examiner at the Austrian Patent Office, now already 16 years ago. In her free time, she works a lot with boats, so she has finally entered the Patent Office Department of Mechanical Engineering, examining inventions about ships and related equipment.


She has as well been in the Service Department for a long time, giving advice to companies and start-ups, holding patent search workshops, and giving talks all around patents and the protection of intellectual property. She thus knows not only about the patent world but has also a solid knowledge of trademark and design protection mechanisms.
