FORTH-IESL

Patent applications - The MUST in protecting your results

Abstract

 An introduction to the patent protection system is given with emphasis on what can be protected and what is excluded.

 Next, we will discuss the basics of the patent grant systems, the procedure to be followed for the preparation of a patent application, the initial costs and the workflow followed at IESL.

 Espacenet will be explored, which allows to find patent information such as family members, citations and legal status information from the EPO and other partner national patent offices.

 Finally, patent searching with Espacenet will be illustrated for case studies and real examples.
