As in previous years, we will offer an optional training session prior to the "East meets West" forum on Wednesday, 9 April 2014. For the first time, we will provide participants with the opportunity to book a time slot with one of our specialists to discuss their individual Asian patent information matters in depth. These 30-minute one-on-one talks with the EPO's Asia experts will take place on Thursday, 10 April 2014 in the morning. 

In addition to these two sessions, a workshop on "What the user community needs", hosted by the Patent Documentation Group (PDG) will take place on Thursday, 10 April 2014. Participation in the workshop is free of charge.

All these optional activities will take place at the EPO's sub-office in Vienna, Rennweg 12, 1030 Vienna, Austria.

Understanding trial information from China, Japan, Korea
Trainers: Jutta Haußer, Christine Kämmer, Jürgen Mühl (EPO)

In this training, participants will get an overview of the different trial procedures possible during the lifetime of a patent in China, Japan and Korea (appeal, invalidation, correction etc.). We will discuss the various online sources available to retrieve information about these trials. You will learn how to search the corresponding legal status events in both English and the original languages. Wherever available, you will see how to retrieve documents related to the procedures (amendments, final judgements etc.) and explore the functionalities of the different databases. This intensive training session will provide you with the necessary tools to better understand the trial information retrieved via the Asian sources.

Each participant will have access to a computer for hands-on exercises. Knowledge of Asian languages is not required.

Book your individual one-on-one meeting with one of the EPO's Asian patent information specialists. In a confidential setting, you can ask questions about the Asian patent systems, get a tutorial in searching free online databases or discuss cases from your own daily work. Once you have registered, we will get in touch with you to clarify the countries and topics with you in advance, in order to allocate a time slot with a suitable expert.

"What the user community needs - towards effective collaboration between East and West"
Chairman: Peter Kallas (BASF)
Presentation (PDF, 1895 KB)

At the 2009 "East meets West" forum in Vienna, the PDG (Patent Documentation Group) met representatives of Asian patent offices and their related organisations to discuss closer cooperation between industry users and the Asian patent offices. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, this fruitful dialogue was continued. This meeting has now established itself as a focal point for discussing user requirements pertaining to Asian patent information.        

This year, patent information users again have the opportunity to continue the informal exchange with representatives from patent offices in Asia. The workshop will look at progress made since the last meeting in 2013. It will review recent developments in Asian patent information and their impact on patent information users. The aim of this ongoing dialogue between the user community and experts from Asian patent offices is to identify areas that still require improvements and to find a collaborative way of setting priorities for these.
