One of the most important technical fields of this decade is space and satellite technology. The potential impact on all our lives will be enormous, from the multitude of uses for Earth observation data, to navigation and telecommunications. With the launch of Europe's own Galileo GNSS to rival GPS it is clear that the technology race will intensify. This is also an area where standards are key to the development and evolution of technology, ensuring interoperability of systems. But what happens when patents and standards collide? If you have a question about patenting in this field, or are unsure about what can be patented and what not, then come along to this session and meet an EPO examiner who is expert in this field.
