The CPSA training course covers search, analysis and reporting techniques to prepare patent landscape reports for business decision making. Attendees will learn how to construct and perform business-focused patent searches, how to analyse the results and what to include in a patent landscape report.

Previous course attendees valued the “Balance of breadth & detail, reflecting the experience of the instructors” and commented that the course provided “Really excellent coverage of how to conduct landscape searches.”

This course will benefit anyone who wants to understand more about using patent information for technical and business purposes, including those working in R&D, technology transfer, strategic business development and competitive intelligence roles, and Intellectual Property (IP) managers.

The Commercial Patent Search & Analysis online course will take place over two 1.5 hour sessions, starting at 2p.m. BST (14:00 UK Time), on 13-14 July. Enrolment costs £190 + VAT for both sessions, including a course workbook, access to commercial databases provided by our sponsors and a certificate of attendance.

CIIPM’s virtual training course IP Matters, providing an introduction to all types of intellectual property assets, including patents, trademarks, utility models and designs, will take place on 11-12 August. Attendees will gain an understanding of how to protect their own innovations in order to build an IP portfolio. Find out more here:
