The Centre for Patents and Standards

The Centre for Patents and Standards

The Centre for Patents and Standards ('Patent- und Normenzentrum' in German, abbreviated to 'PNZ') provides information and services surrounding industrial property rights, such as patents, utility models, trademarks and designs. We offer research support and workshops to students and researchers at universities in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. As the PNZ is a public facility, our services are also available to SMEs and research facilities, as well as private persons interested in industrial property rights.

Existing standards and guidelines can be viewed free of charge at the Centre's Standards Information Point.
