Morning


1. COMMERCIAL PATENT SEARCH AND ANALYSIS

Patent landscaping for business decision making.


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 in number 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 stay, 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.

4. FREEDOM TO OPERATE SEARCH AND ANALYSIS

Patent searching. Analysis and reporting for ‘freedom to operate’: A practical approach.


Companies, large and small, all need to take care to ensure that, as far as possible, their potential product, or process, will not infringe any existing products or patents. This half-day training will cover aspects of freedom to operate (FTO). We will review how to prepare for FTO searching, how to stage FTO according to where you are in the product development process, and what you can do when your budget is limited. How to perform a limited ‘FTO’ on a small budget to minimize risks, and how to perform a full ‘clearance’. The training will also cover how to analyse the results, and how to report your findings.

Attendees will be limited in number so there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and consider specific topics in more detail. We encourage attendees to arrive in time for lunch which will also give further opportunities to discuss IP and search issues with the experts and to learn from other’s experiences.

Attendees should bring a laptop or tablet in order to participate in the practical sessions.
