Beyond the Spreadsheet: Essential Tools for Patent Analysis



  Aprili 22, 2020

  8:00 a.m. PDT, 11:00 a.m. EDT, 16:00 BST, 17:00 CEST




This webinar provides insight and instruction on the processes and tools used to understand and manage patents and scientific literature. Through our case study with Algae Biofuels, our presenters demonstrate real-world examples to organize, search and annotate large patent landscapes, demonstrating how that leads to informed R&D, business and IP decision making.

Whether you’re comparing new invention disclosures to your own portfolio or assessing what your competitors are working on, establishing a repeatable patent analysis process supported by software is critical to any long-term success.
