Project Historical research project on the history of the Reichspatentamt

In order to comprehensively review the history of its predecessor institution, the Reichspatentamt (Patent Office of the German Reich), in the period from 1933 to 1945, the DPMA has invited tenders for a historical research project. Furthermore, research is to be done on the period without a patent office, from 1945 to 1949, and on the new beginning of the German Patent Office in the period from 1949 to about 1965. A comprehensive examination of the history of the Patent Office in the above-mentioned period has so far not been conducted. In the past years, historical research has often dealt with the involvement of the German administrative machinery in the Nazi crimes and the continuance of people involved in those crimes in their positions in the early years of the Federal Republic of Germany. The aim of the project “Review of the History of the Reichspatentamt in the Nazi Era and of the New Start in the Post-War Period” is to review this period for the Patent Office as well. The main study of the project is expected to be completed by October 2026.
