CIIPM Training in Freedom to Operate Search & Analysis

Companies large and small all need to take care to ensure, as far as possible, that their potential product or process will not infringe any existing products or patents.  This half-day training will cover aspects of freedom to operate (FTO).   We will review how to prepare for FTO searching, how to stage FTO work according to the stage of the product development process, what you can do to minimize risks when your budget is limited, and how to perform a full ‘clearance’.   The training will also cover how to analyse the results, and how to report your findings.

Attendees will be limited to a maximum of 15 so there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and consider specific topics in more detail. Lunch is included in the price and we encourage attendees to arrive in time for lunch, giving further opportunity to discuss IP and search issues with the experts and to learn from other’s experiences. Access to patent databases will be provided by Minesoft, who will also have a representative present to answer any database specific questions. Attendees should bring a laptop or tablet in order to participate in the practical sessions.

Cost£150 + VAT for half day includes lunch (discount if whole day booked)
