I am using SP2013 with standard licence. I would like to use the Content Search webpart. Is it possible or do I need to have the enterprice licence? I am talking about the search webpart where I can select many display templates.

These are the only search webparts I have.

It is an Enterprise webpart, so no. For standard you can use the Search Results webpart but as you may know, it works a bit different


Yes, you need the enterprise license for the content search web part as it is not available to the foundation nor the standard edition.

See this blog for a comparison chart of all the SharePoint 2013 editions.
