Join this year's online conference to gain a deeper insight into how our examiners tackle the complex task of searching the ever-expanding body of prior art.

Some of the topics we'll also explore include:

  • Advanced features in Espacenet
  • Machine translation tool
  • Asian prior art
  • Interrelated patents and applications
  • The problem-solution approach

This high-level event is once again organised by the European Patent Academy.
