The world of patents and state-of-the-art searching can be a minefield if you’re not fully up to date with latest practices and technologies. This practical course will take you through the processes of defining, instigating and completing a state-of-the-art search in relation to patents.
From understanding the range of databases available, choosing a data collection and defining your search scope, right through to completing the search and evaluating the results, the expert trainers will give you all the insights you need to avoid costly pitfalls. They will make sure you are up to date with new technologies and offer guidance on monitoring patent families. This is a must-attend, value-rich event for all those involved in state-of-the-art searching.
