The European Patent Office (EPO) has recently published 'Inventors Revisited', a new video and podcast series in which it reconnects with former finalists and winners of the European Inventor Award. Throughout the series, viewers will be able to learn the latest inventions and innovation trends, while getting a rare glimpse at cutting-edge research. Due to coronavirus-imposed travel restrictions, the entire series was produced digitally, highlighting the role innovation can play in overcoming the current challenges.

In addition to covering new technology, the series also explores the effect of the European Inventor Award on the inventors themselves, their work, and wider society.

The inventors represent a variety of fields ranging from cancer diagnosis to satellite tracking. The series also provides insight into diverse intellectual property (IP) strategies, with researchers, entrepreneurs and venture capitalists all discussing the significance of IP in their respective areas.

The entire Inventors Revisited video series is available on the EPO website. Currently, several podcasts can be downloaded or streamed, with new episodes to be added in the weeks ahead. The podcasts have also been syndicated across Anchor.fm, Spotify, Stitcher, and Google Podcasts.
