European Patent Information and the CPC Taxonomy as Linked Open Data

Poster & Demo

Patent data is a valuable source of business, technical and legal information. The European patent office has recently begun the regular publication of bibliographic information of European patents, including the full CPC taxonomy, in linked data format with an open standard license. Data scientists, commercial providers, web developers etc. can now browse this data set, run SPARQL queries or bulk download the full data. Linked data significantly reduces the effort of combining heterogeneous data from multiple sources and domains.
