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.

Morning:

COMMERCIAL PATENT SEARCH AND ANALYSIS

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 cover areas such as technology, market landscape and competitor landscaping.   Each type of 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.

Afternoon:

IP MATTERS

During the afternoon we will provide you with a basic understanding of how to develop, commercialise and manage IP.   We will review how to go about working with others from the IP perspective, to include, contracts and confidentiality agreements, building an IP strategy, preparing an IP policy, and IP matters relating to employees.  The training will consider IP management, and provide a framework for establishing a robust practice in house.
