Making patent searches more effective with Boolean

Patent searching is something most IP counsel is very familiar with. It's your day to day when looking at Freedom to Operate, competitive analysis and portfolio management.

However, it can be hard to predict what you need in a search when you are not a technical expert. In this webinar, we will teach you how to construct the most effective searches using boolean and a few other tips and tricks on how to ensure you include all the technical detail you need.

  • How to accelerate FTO searches on sequences by 70% Recorded: Nov 21 2018 35 mins
    Jessie Parker @ PatSnap
    Scientists in the biotech and pharma industries spend a large amount of time and resources on researching sequences. However, often as researches progress to the later stages of R&D, they become blocked by competitors and products that are already on the market.

    Using a sequence searching tool which links to patent data can help you identify obstacles and freedom to operate much earlier on. Having access to a full data set sooner, can help you save time, money and enhance your R&D.

    Join this webinar to find out how you can accelerate FTO searches on your sequences.
  • Tracking technology trends to maximise commercialisation value Recorded: Sep 26 2018 55 mins
    Mireya McKee CEO of McKee Innovation Consulting
    Technology commercialisation at its core requires for an invention to be applied to a use case in a specific market. Doing this successfully will ensure that you are getting ROI out of your research and inventions. Mireya McKee has over 16 years experience in research, academia and commercialisation and will be talking about how she utilises technology trends to maximise commercialisation value.

    Some of the topics discussed in this webinar will be:

    * How to track technology trends

    * How technology readiness levels can affect commercialisation opportunities
  • Using sponsored research as a pathway to licensing early stage technologies Recorded: Aug 14 2018 46 mins
    Laura Schoppe, President and Owner of Fuentek
    Patent licensing negotiations have an extremely high fail rate- this can be down to unfavourable licensing terms or weak patent portfolios. One of the ways universities and industry are trying to bridge the gap between innovation and commercialisation is by working together much earlier.

    From a university standpoint, their research can be tailored to specific industry needs, as well as having research costs covered. Through the eyes of industry, they can get their hands on the latest research developments, and attract the brightest and talented individuals to their businesses.

    Laura Schoppe, President and Founder of Fuentek, who has years experience helping TTO's improve their chances of commercalisation will be joining us to discuss:

    - How to start sourcing strategic sponsorship deals
    - Where to begin with searching and conversations for partnerships
    - The benefits of this chosen pathway. i.e Minimising risk

    Please note: All viewers will have their data shared with our guest speaker.
  • How to create a 5-year M&A plan for dealing with patent cliffs Recorded: Jul 25 2018 40 mins
    Jurgen Vollrath, President at Exponential Technology Counsel
    A ‘Patent cliff’ describes a severe drop in revenue once the patent for a company’s leading product expires. The sharp revenue decline is a result of competitors being able to start developing and selling the product, often at a much lower price.

    As US biopharmaceutical company Celgene struggles to get regulatory approval from the FDA, the company is facing major market, shares and revenue losses, and is facing a phenomenal patent cliff. Furthermore, research from EvaluatePharma reports that an estimated $250 billion in projected sales is at risk between 2018-2024 as many drugs lose exclusivity.

    When it comes to acquisitions, the effects of a dwindling patent term can severely impact the value of your company. So how do you create 5-year plan to prepare for an inevitable patent cliff? We are very excited to welcome back Jurgen Vollrath, President of Exponential Technology Counsel, and customer of PatSnap. ET Counsel, advise clients on IP strategy & business alignment to ensure the most successful M&A and exit outcomes.

    In this webinar, Jurgen will be discussing:

    - Risk vs. reality when it comes to patent cliffs
    - How to create a 5-year M&A plan for your organisation
    - How to find potential acquisition targets
    - Predicting the potential impact a patent cliff could have on your business.

  • How to broaden patent claims: Lessons from automotive and consumer goods Recorded: Jun 20 2018 40 mins
    Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & CTO of Lycoworks
    With innovation budgets increasing each year and R&D becoming more competitive, many organisations are getting creative in how they increase the reach of their IP protection.

    One technique is to widen IP claims by patenting human experiences induced by the product or service. This is often seen in the automotive and consumer goods sectors, commonly describing visual and tactile sensations around the original technology.

    Jason Lye, IAM 300 Strategist & Founder of Lyco Works has worked with many clients using this technique and will be hosting this webinar to discuss how your company could benefit from broadening patent claims in this way. He will also cover:

    - What patenting human experiences really means and looks like
    - The importance of not forgetting the human-impact your technologies create
    - How claim-broadening technique offers another layer of protection for your technology
    - Why it will make it much harder for your competitors to trap you in litigation cases.
  • How to find new innovation opportunities using technology mapping and IP data Recorded: Jun 13 2018 39 mins
    Pari Datta, Senior innovation and research consultant at Cambridge Design Partnership
    Mature products, such as smartphones and cars, tend to become very similar – whether they are from different manufacturers or the latest model from the same manufacturer.

    Speed, power and slight changes in appearance become the focus for many companies. Marketing can make advances through insightful methods to dig deeper into opportunities from unmet needs – but the right science and technology are required to make them real.

    R&D teams have access to incredible developments in science and technology, such as artificial intelligence and the latest developments in genetics, but struggle to find how to link them with market opportunities. Opportunities become ‘market pull’ or ‘technology push’, without joining together. Innovation opportunities must connect customer needs with science and technology to be more than just ideas or technologies.

    This webinar will demonstrate how technology mapping can be used to discover new opportunities, whichever direction you start from, and how IP landscapes can then help you to make the right connections.

    Please note: Registrants details will be shared with the presenter after the webinar.

  • Chemical patents: What can they tell us about failing drug discovery? Recorded: May 23 2018 49 mins
    Roshan Jumnah, Chemical IP Data Analyst at PatSnap
    Modern drug discovery appears in many ways to be well-defined with tried-and-tested approaches to acquire success. However, some research processes often lead to very few new discoveries and sometimes stagnation of an entire research area.

    So, does it always have to be this way? One method to re-boot a failing area of research is to employ disruptive chemical methods and thinking to kick-start a process of rejuvenation.

    We invite you to our webinar with Roshan Jumnah, Chemical IP data analyst at PatSnap to explore:

    - Can we identify the reasons why drug discovery is failing?
    - Chemical disruption, its uses, and the impact of this new approach on the pharmaceutical industry
