T1: Search techniques and strategies using classification symbols – tips and tricks for becoming an expert

Classification allows patent offices to organise their documentation in order to retrieve prior art efficiently. The complexity associated with the technical evolution in all fields requires patent offices to revise and update the classification indexation of their documentation continuously in order to carry out their mission.

The aim of this session is to provide guidance on how to search efficiently using symbols. The following topics will be addressed:

  • CPC vs IPC vs FI
  •  Y-tags for cross-cutting technologies
  • Combination sets in the CPC: a powerful search method
  • Revision cycles

Level: Intermediate
Price: EUR 130

T2: Protection beyond the expiry of the patent after 20 years: supplementary protection certificates in Europe and patent term extensions in the United States, Japan, Korea and Chinese Taipei

Since the introduction of the Hatch-Waxman Act in the US in 1984, many countries and regions have adopted laws for extending patent protection on medicinal products as a compensation for the expensive research and development phase in the pharmaceutical industry. These laws also facilitate the production of generic drugs after the protection has expired.

This training session aims at a better understanding of patent term extensions for medicinal products in Europe, the United States and Asia.

In the first part of the training, you will get you an overview of patent term extensions in Europe ("SPCs") and in the United States. We will present the legal framework and combine it with the information in our databases like INPADOC or Espacenet. We will also have a look at the future plans for SPC information in INPADOC.

In the second part of the training, we will focus on patent term extension information from Asian countries. We will give an overview of related provisions in the local patent laws and regulations of Japan, Korea and Chinese Taipei. In addition, we will show you how to retrieve the related information from the official JPO, KIPO and TIPO sources. We will also give tips on how the EPO’s Asian patent information services can help you go further with this topic.

Level: Intermediate - Advanced
Price: EUR 130

T3: Patent analytics

Patent analytics supports decision making in large and small companies, technology transfer offices and policy-making bodies. Potential fields of application range from analysing the innovation strategy of the competition, spotting new entrants and potential business partners to discovering emerging technologies.

This training session gives a general overview of the main process steps related to patent analytics, including the statistical analysis of bibliographical and legal status patent data based on some easy-to-understand SQL queries in PATSTAT Online.

Using the example of selected emerging technology sectors, the training course will show how patent analytics can help decision-makers with additional insight and knowledge hidden in the patent data.

Level: Advanced
Price: EUR 130


T4: Legal event data: seeing the trees in the wood

It is getting increasingly difficult, even for experienced patent information users, to keep pace with the stream of legal event information and to understand what happens to patent applications and granted patents.

Various activities by patent offices, patent information service providers and stakeholders aim at making the life of patent information users easier in the field of legal event patent data.

Two initiatives particularly stand out: the WIPO standard on legal event patent data and the classification of event codes in the EPO’s worldwide legal status database (INPADOC).

This training course provides a general overview of both initiatives and explains their basic concepts.

Examples and case studies on EP legal event data will illustrate how the WIPO standard and the INPADOC classification scheme can be used to better understand legal event data and to tap the benefits from the data during patent searches and analyses.

T5: Citation information in Espacenet and CCD

Citation analysis is used in many ways. One application is to find related state of the art climbing up and down the citation tree. But citation analysis can also be used to quantify the importance of inventions, to identify potential collaborators or for the early detection of other players making use of your technology.

This training session sheds a light on citation analysis by exploring all types of citations and how they may be used in combination with other bibliographic data. We will highlight how citations are displayed in Espacenet and which additional information can be found via the Common Citation Document (CCD).

Level: Intermediate
Price: EUR 110

T6: Retrieving non-patent literature from Asia

This course provides you with an overview of sources to retrieve non-patent literature (NPL) from Japan, China and Korea. There are a high number of commercial NPL platforms available in Asian languages. However, this presentation will focus on a selection of well-known (public) sources that are mostly searchable via English-language interfaces and are - at least partially -  accessible free of charge.

Level: Intermediate
Price: EUR 110

T7: Understanding patent families at the EPO: the simple and extended INPADOC family

This training course explains the concept of patent families and their key features.

Starting with an overview of how patent data is processed, grouped and stored in the EPO's databases, the course will introduce the general concept of patent families and the way they are used at the EPO for Espacenet, Open Patent Services (OPS) and other products. We will explain how priorities are used in the patent family building process. Examples will illustrate how patent families are created and how they can be interpreted in patent information users daily routine.
