You can access the valuation tool IP Score, via the European Patent Office (EPO) which is a tool for evaluating patents and technical development projects. The tool gives both a qualitative and quantitative evaluation in the form of a financial forecast showing the current value of the evaluated technology. IP Score simultaneously provides a graphical overview and a report, which can both be used to communicate the result of the evaluation.
The Danish Patent and Trademark Office developed IP Score back in 2001, after which the tool was purchased and developed further by EPO. Using IP Score is free.
