Limited Capacity seats available

With over 80 million documents, all sorted and classified according to technology type, the free databases of the EPO make it easy to find a wealth of relevant scientific and technical information. Most of the documents describe technical solutions which are free to use, because the patents are not in force! And thanks to Patent Translate, documents in over a dozen languages can now be understood instantly. Did you know that patent information can support more than just your research? The databases can lead you to previously unknown suppliers, partners or rivals too, providing a more complete view of the market.

During this session experts from the EPO will introduce the databases and their search functions, explaining tricks and tips for extracting the answers you need in developing your technology.
