PatSnap Innovation Academy course: Understanding patents and their role

About this course

R&D needs robust research methodologies to capture information contained in intellectual property. In this course we join IP expert Duncan Clark as we examine 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.’
