In this seminar, participants will learn about the different types of intellectual property rights and the possibilities they offer for protection. You will learn how to select and evaluate individual IP rights according to the situation. Patents will be the primary focus of the seminar. Based on practical examples, participants will analyse the structure of a patent, learn to draw important information from a patent specification, interpret patent claims correctly, and, with that, to read patents efficiently. The seminar will round off with a presentation of the basics of the patent granting procedure using the example of the European Patent.
The seminar is comprised of a theoretical part and practical exercises. This ensures that participants can easily and effectively use the information and contents of a patent specification, and that they can directly apply what they have learned after the seminar in their work environment.
Training is for up to 10 staff in-company.
In-house information will be treated confidentiality since the seminar takes place at the company requesting the seminar.
