Assisted Patent Search for the Promotion of Research and Innovation
If you are a researcher at a publicly funded organization or institution, our “assisted patent searches for public research institutions” offers an entire day with a patent expert in your field to answer questions about patents and patenting, to find out how to develop and refine optimal search strategies and conducting a searche in different databases for creating an overview of prior art regarding your particular invention. Based on this overview, you can asses whether your invention is novel and if it is worthwhile applying for a patent.
