Your partner for innovation

Patents are a vital instrument for protecting the results of years of expensive research against imitators. They permit Bosch not just to secure its own technology leadership, but also to let others participate in it as licensees.

Since Bosch operates throughout the world, the company’s patents are also registered in many countries. The patent applications filed in their patent offices are one testimony to the creativity of our associates and our role as a global motor of innovation.

Not every idea leads to a patent application. All of the inventions that have not made it that far are on public display in Stuttgart-Feuerbach (Bregenzer Strasse).
