How to Perform Prior Art Searches

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

Learn to conduct patent searches step-by-step, through our one-day workshop. Discover effective search strategies, apply the use of syntax to increase efficiency, and learn how to identify relevant documents via publicly available databases.


You should possess knowledge of patents, components of patent specification, and understand information presented in search reports. You are also required to bring along a laptop or mobile devices to participate in the practical exercises designed for the workshop.
