3. COMMERCIAL PATENT SEARCH AND ANALYSIS Patent landscaping for business...
Often called patent landscaping or IP analytics, CIIPM’s Commercial Patent Search & Analysis training will provide an overview of search and analysis techniques for 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 focus on two aspects of commercial search – competitive intelligence and technology, and market landscaping. How to prepare the dataset for your analysis. Each 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.
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 remain for lunch, giving further opportunity to discuss IP 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 database specific questions. Attendees should bring a laptop or tablet in order to participate in the practical sessions.
