Patent Searching Workshops

26 & 27 March 2019


Intellectual Property Rights are becoming increasingly important to Northern Ireland businesses.

Invest NI, in conjunction with the European Patent Office (EPO), are holding two workshops in this specialist area.

The EPO’s search engine Espacenet is an essential business tool when developing new products with the database holding more than 90 million patent documents from around the world.

Espacenet can:

  • search and find patent publications
  • track the progress of emerging technologies
  • find solutions to technical problems
  • see what your competitors are developing

Hosted by an EPO expert, these workshops will highlight how proficient use of patent literature is an essential tool in improving innovation and knowledge management, offering attendees a great opportunity to advance in these critical areas.

Each workshop costs £50 inclusive of VAT per delegate. Please be advised that due to the limited number of places available we ask that you only register for one of the dates.
