According to the head of Rospatent Grigory Ivliev, the Patent Office is interested in developing electronic interaction with applicants. The Office plans to motivate the inventors who file electronic applications by making submission of electronic applications 30% cheaper than submission of applications on paper. Working with applications on paper requires "more time, costs, and they are not dealt with good enough", while despite the coronavirus pandemic, high-quality work with online systems allowed the Patent Office to continue working at the same level. A bill was introduced to the State Duma, which, if passed, would allow to postpone paying the fees to Rospatent for one year.
