Core Patent Search Skills:

This half day training covers the core essential skills needed for successful patent searching.  Join us to learn some essential subject search skills, find out about patent families, and how to approach company name and inventor name searches.  We teach the background and theory of how to use the IPC and CPC patent classification systems, and how to use forward and backward patent citations to broaden and narrow your search results.   Bring along your laptop to participate in two practical sessions where you will have access to professional patent search databases to practice your skills.

The course is aimed at those with less than two years patent searching, those who only search patents occasionally and/ or  who want to their knowledge of patent information and update search skills.

Commercial Patent Search And Analysis:

CIIPM’s Commercial Patent Search & Analysis training will provide an overview of search and analysis techniques for patent landscape business decision making.  Attendees will gain an understanding of how to construct and perform business focussed patent searches and how to analyse the results for reporting.  We will cover areas such as technology, market landscape and competitor landscaping. Each type of business question will require a particular dataset.  In this course we show how to select sources for the search, how to work within budget and timeframes whilst providing reasonable answers, and how to report on the scope and risks associated with the results, without detracting from the answers generated.

Who should attend?

Anyone who wants to learn more about managing innovation practices and the commercialisation of technologies in relation to IP.
