Espacenet search strategy sessions are small-scale workshops for up to 5 participants held with one EPO expert from DG1, Patent granting process and one expert from DG5, Patent knowledge. They are based on the Espacenet preformatted queries available on the EPO Fighting COVID platform.
They are offered in 3 technical fields:
- Healthcare, Biotechnology and Chemistry (HBC),
- Information and Communications Technology (ICT) and
- Mobility & Mechatronics (M&M).
The 1,5 hour workshops will take place online after the conference day on 6 and 8 October (see programme for more details) and can be booked in addition to a ticket to the Search Matters 2021 conference. When registering online, you will have to indicate the session you would like to attend.
Places are limited and offered on a first come, first serve basis.
