Training event for patent search professionals
Search Matters is an annual event that not only showcases the EPO’s patent search strategies and techniques, but also offers an unrivalled look behind the scenes at the Office.
In 2020, Search Matters will be held in the Hague, Netherlands, and aims to deliver workshops and lectures with a special focus on disruptive technologies such as 3D printing and AI.
EPO examiners will provide an insight into how they tackle the complex task of searching the ever expanding prior art.
Further topics dealt with by the workshops on offer are:
- Tools such as machine translations, PATENTSCOPE as well as non-patent literature
- Asian patent literature
- Aspects of search at the opposition stage
- Exploration of the search process itself, e.g. finding related patents, forward searching
