Paper Abstract

The European Patent Office has created a nanotechnology initiative in order to continue to ensure the granting of high-quality patents while coping with the increasing workload and with the multidisciplinarity of the inventions in this area of technology. The classification work in the field of nanotechnology is outlined with special emphasis on the sub-discipline of nanophotonics.
