How to Perform Prior Art Searches?
9 Nov 2017
5.5 Public SILE CPD points available

When charting research and development activities, do you verify if the technology already exists and if it is owned by others? Do you know that you can detect existing similar developments or inventions by conducting a prior art search?

Be trained by qualified patent examiners from the IP Office of Singapore in how they combine patent and non-patent literature in the search for prior art. The workshop shall guide you through patent searches in a step-by-step manner. It also covers search strategies, usage of syntax to increase efficiency, and identifying relevant documents via publicly available databases.
