High-quality services, satisfied customers, motivated staff and successful cooperation projects are of paramount importance to the German Patent and Trade Mark Office. Therefore, we relaunched our strategy process several years ago. In a first step, we defined fields of action from which we derived a strategic target system. So far we have introduced many measures to ensure that we achieve our targets. You will learn more about our strategy on these pages.
Our strategy comprises our vision, defines our fields of action and reflects our goals. We want to render first-class services to our customers, ensure the performance and satisfaction of our staff and continue the successful development of the IP system.
