Join the Office of Innovation Development as we present:

How to Search and why you want to?

Performing a search can help prevent a person from submitting an application with an invention that is already described in existing patents.

This presentation will provide you with information about:

  • Prior art – what it is and why search for it
  • Tools and Resources available for searching
  • Text and classification search strategies
  • Understanding the Cooperative Patent Classification (CPC) system and how to use it
