New regional office and community outreach office to serve as innovation centers for local/regional innovators
WASHINGTON— The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) today announced that it will open a new regional office in the Atlanta, Georgia metropolitan area serving innovators in the Southeast region, and a new community outreach office in Strafford County, New Hampshire, serving innovators in the New England region. The new regional office and community outreach office will serve as an extension of the agency’s outreach operations. The offices will function as important resource centers to better serve local inventors and entrepreneurs, including those from underrepresented backgrounds. The new regional office in Atlanta is expected to be fully opened and operational by December 2025, with the New Hampshire outreach office soon thereafter.
