Edition No. 2/2020


Dear Sir or Madam


We would like to keep you informed of new and interesting topics in the field of patent and technology searches, which is why we are pleased to send you our second newsletter.


01 Our experience at the 2020 IPO Virtual Annual Meeting
02 Webinar on Strategic Patent Analysis

03 IP Service World in Munich is cancelled


01 Our experience at the 2020 IPO Virtual Annual Meeting


We took part in the IPO Virtual Annual Meeting from 21 to 24 September with a virtual exhibition stand in the form of a website. And it worked well. Visitors were able to make appointments, chat, and drink virtual coffee with us. Various videos provided insight into our searches, while visitors could watch webinars and try their luck in an online competition.

Our experience has shown that inhibitions must be overcome, even in the virtual world. Only by actively participating with a click of the mouse can contacts be made and the event be of benefit... true to the motto, ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained.’


02 Webinar on Strategic Patent Analysis


A patent analysis provides you with an overview of a technology area, your competitors or trends. In addition, it can also help to better evaluate the economic value of a patent portfolio.

On 2 December 2020, we are offering a webinar providing an insight into our Strategic Patent Analysis using the example of bioinformatics. You will learn how we carry out such an analysis and how the results can be used. The webinar is being organised by IPR, an IP consulting company based in Israel. Participation is free of charge and begins at 3pm CET. We would be delighted if you would join us.


03 IP Service World in Munich is cancelled


The IP Service World was to have taken place in Munich from 23 to 24 November. Unfortunately, Europe's largest IP congress exhibition has had to be cancelled at short notice due to the Corona pandemic. It will also not be carried out virtually. The next IP Service World will take place from 22 to 23 November 2021.


Yours faithfully
