Are novelty requirements less strict for a utility mode patent than for an invention patent?

Yes, because there are more techniques in an invention than in an utility model, thus, there are more requirements for creativity. Besides, invention application includes product invention and method of invention, while the utility model focuses more on products structure (not on the way of manufacturing the product).
