This event is organised by the European Innovation Council and SMEs Executive Agency.

This webinar is about technical innovation. Innovation is about taking an idea to a commercialised product process or service. At various stages throughout the process decisions need to be made. A very important resource to enable those decisions to be made is information. Part of that information resource is the information contained in patents. The webinar will explain the various stages in the innovation process, and how patent information can assist the decision-making process in going from one stage to the other to successful commercialisation and beyond. This webinar is particularly relevant to SMEs and entrepreneurs involved in new product or process development.

Learning objectives:

  • innovation terminology;
  • stages in the innovation process;
  • different types of patent information content;
  • application of patent information to innovation management.
