Units in this Course
Understanding patents and their role
R&D needs robust research methodologies to capture information contained in intellectual property. In this course we join Duncan Clark, Head of PatSnap Academy. This course examines how to get to the information that really matters. Along the way, we’ll consider the art of patent searching, how to use patents to glean inspiration and how to use patents to determine the likely success of R&D projects. This is a intermediate level course which follows on from ‘The technical and legal framework for patents’ and takes about 3 hours to complete.
How to successfully commercialize IP
Having a robust innovation strategy and IP is essential if you want to successfully commercialise your ideas and inventions. In this course we join Duncan Clark, Head of PatSnap Academy and other guest speakers with expertise in this area. The course examines market and licensing strategies, patent valuation and how to benchmark the likelihood of success. We examine how to use innovation data to keep commercialization efforts on track. This is an intermediate level course which requires no previous knowledge and takes about 1 hour 30 minutes to complete.
How are patents valued?
IP can make up a large percentage of an organisation’s intangible assets but how much is your IP worth to your company? In this course we join Duncan Clark, Head of PatSnap Academy and other guest speakers with expertise in this area. The course explores how patents can be valued using a number of different methodologies and how the output from these analyses can be used for negotiations, licensing, raising funding or measuring R&D performance. This is an advanced level course which follows on from ‘How to successfully commercialize IP’ and takes about 1 hour 20 minutes to complete.
Master the Art of Patent Search
Patent searching is somewhat of an art form but by understanding the methodology and using a little bit of creativity you can unlock answers you never even knew existed. In this course we join Samuel Gibbon, Product Manager at PatSnap. The course looks at how to identify which fields should be included for different searches, how to use Boolean logic and how to refine results using data such as classification codes, dates, jurisdictions and other information. This is a foundation level course which aimed any those looking at IP searching for the first time and takes about 1 hour 10 minutes to complete.
