The patent database can be a vital source of information. Patent information can not only be interesting for protection of your invention, but can also be a source of inspiration, information on new technologies and information on competitors. It can also help estimate novelty and an indication of freedom to operate before deciding to file a patent. In this interactive training we will try to make searching in patent databases less intimidating for you.  We will teach you how to search with keywords, classification codes and how to read a patent. After the training you will be more confident to find your way in the database with over 140 million patent publications.  This training is provided by The Netherlands Patent Office, part of Netherlands Enterprise Agency (RVO).
