MUNICH (Reuters) – German industrial group Siemens filed the most patent applications in Europe last year, pushing China’s Huawei [HWT.UL] into second place, the European Patent Office said on Tuesday.

Siemens filed 2,493 patent applications in 2018, the office said.

That was ahead of the 2,485 applications filed by Chinese telecoms network supplier Huawei, which had registered the most of any company in 2017.
