Patent Searching to Develop your Research and Innovation Activities
Domain: A2 Cognitive abilities

TACE: A - Acquisition

Format: Workshop
Suitable for: All

An introduction to patent searching on the internet and how this can be used to inform your research and innovation activities. 80% of technological disclosures in patents are not published elsewhere meaning they are a valuable source of information. Even if a patent is in-force they can be used for free for non-commercial purposes.

The course will introduce the participants to the world of patents and relevant tools required for searching patents. The course is supported by plenty of practical sessions to ensure that the participants are confident in patent searching.

Completion of the course will provide the participants with a basic understanding of patents, how to search them and apply them to build their research and innovation activities.

On completion of this course, it is expected that learners will be able to:
• Understand what constitutes an invention and how patents protect them
• Understand the ins and outs of patenting
• Understand how to search for patents
• Understand how patents are classified and how this can be used to effectively search for patents
• Understand how to search patents relevant to their research and innovation activities
