Description

This online seminar explains the concept of patent families and their key features, including priorities. Starting with an overview of how patent data is processed, grouped and stored in the EPO's databases, the webinar 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. Examples and case studies will illustrate how patent families are created and how they can be interpreted by patent information users.

Prerequisites

The EPO offers online seminars in conjunction with WebEx, so initially some WebEx software will be installed on your computer. If this is not allowed due to different settings you can also run a temporary application.

To make full use of the online seminar we recommend the use of WebEx certified headsets.

You might even like to have a look at the tips on how to connect to online seminars.
