About the Workshop:

Search for prior-art is the primary criteria to establish the novelty and non-obviousness of an in­vention and hence to determine its patentability. Prior-art will include patents related to an inven­tion. In this workshop you’ll learn about the tools and resources available to do a patent search which teaches or otherwise directly related to your invention(s). On-line demonstrations will also be given on some methodologies specific to your technical field. Please bring your laptop for the session.
