Participants will learn how and why patent data is one if not the most objective and comprehensive data source available to assess innovation activities and R&D outcomes, learn how to assess and adjust their own portfolios, benchmark themselves to the competition, and how to identify recent trends in innovative technologies.
The Series comprises six weekly sessions, starting on September 24, 2020 from 16:00 - 17:30 CET | 10:00 - 11:30 am ET. Each session will comprise 60 to 90 minutes and can be booked individually.
