Patent Search Training
Indeed, patent searching is a crucial and fundamental step in the patent registration process. It serves to validate the novelty of an invention or concept and plays a key role in drafting a high-quality patent application that ensures the broadest possible protection.
At Intellect Bastion, we understand the significance of patent searching, and that’s why we organize and announce Patent Search Training twice a year. During this training, we equip participants with both conceptual and practical knowledge on different types of patent searches.
The types of patent searches covered in the training include:
1. Patentability Search: To assess whether an invention is novel and non-obvious.
2. Validation/Invalidation Search: To verify the validity of an existing patent or challenge its validity.
3. Freedom to Operate/Clearance Search: To ensure that a product or technology does not infringe on existing patents.
4. Infringement Search/Evidence of Use: To identify potential infringement of a patent.
5. Landscape Searches: To study technology trends and state-of-the-art inventions in a specific field.
6. Design Patentability Search: To determine the novelty and protectability of a design.
7. Chemical Structure/Sequence Search: To find novelty in a specific chemical compound.
8. Biological Sequence Search: To search for novelty in DNA/RNA or amino acid sequences.
9. Non-Patent Literature Search: To explore publicly available scientific and technical information.
By completing our Patent Search Training, participants gain the skills and confidence to work as “Patent Analysts” in IP firms. Each participant receives a training certificate upon successfully completing the course, enhancing their credentials and expertise in the field of patent searching and analysis.
