Patent intelligence: Tapping the economic potential of patent information
Patent intelligence – the transformation of patent data into technical, business and legal knowledge – can significantly help companies to analyse the competitive landscape and to uncover new technological trends. It is becoming ever more a key element in developing the company’s business and patent strategy.
This seminar organised by the European Patent Office (EPO) in its first part will highlight how EPO patent databases may be used to perform patent statistics and to visualise the results with widely available software tools. Moreover, EPO tools such as the PATSTAT database and the EPO Patent information expert services allowing basic visualisation of patent data will be explained in detail.
In the second part of the seminar, commercial patent statistics and patent mapping tools will be presented, and it will be demonstrated how publicly available EPO data can be processed. Case studies and participants discussions on how patent intelligence can support technology management in companies and decision making in public institutions will conclude the seminar.
Approximately two weeks before the seminar starts all participants will be invited to a preparatory online session. You will receive further details in due time.
