About INPI

Mission, vision and values

We want to promote the adoption and promotion of Industrial Property Rights in Portugal and be a model of good practice at both national and international level.



INPI’s mission is to ensure the protection of Industrial Property (IP), securing an adequate, effective and reliable granting, maintenance and extinction of rights.

Furthermore, it aims to promote innovation, development and economic growth in the Country, ensuring the necessary steps to fight counterfeiting and unfair competition.


We aim to be recognised as a model of good practice, both by the partners of the National Scientific and Technological System, and by similar bodies and relevant international organisations.


Our activity is guided by the exemption, impartiality and legality in the treatment of all actors in the Industrial Property System (trademarks, patents and design).

The client is at the centre of all INPI's action, which focuses on providing quality services that brings the Institute closer to the citizen.

We value the professional skills and motivation of our employees, whose profiles fit our mission and our values.
