The problem addressed by PLuTO is the increased need for translation given the current Intellectual Property (IP) landscape. Despite attempts to unify the patent system in Europe, there is still significant translation burden when seeking patent validation. Additionally, increased patenting activity across the world, particularly in Asia, means that more and more prior art exists in a "foreign" language, creating a further need for translation by patent searchers and examiners.
At PLuTO, we have identified a number of key objectives to address these needs and improve the translation experience of IP professionals:
The PLuTO project comprises a dynamic industry-academia consortium, each member of which brings significant experience and expertise to some facet of the project. For more information, visit the Consortium section on this website.
