Landon IP Offers Patent Searching Course in Germany for First Time

Landon IP, the developer of Intellogist, will be offering the popular “Art and Science of Patent Searching” course in Germany for the first time ever this Fall, in partnership with Patent Resources Group.  The course will be taught on 27 October to 29 October at the Munich office of Landon IP’s parent company, CPA Global, by two of Landon IP’s patent searching experts – Jonathan Skovholt, Director of Training and Special Projects, and Casey Fowler, Senior Director of IP Search Services, North America and Europe.

This course comprehensively teaches how to conduct a professional patent search.  Designed for patent attorneys and agents, inventors, paralegals, and research managers, the course and its materials will be understood by anyone from the inexperienced to advanced practitioners.  It teaches when, how, where, and why to conduct a search and is appropriate both for those who will conduct the search or those who commission it.  The curriculum reflects the combined expertise of Landon IP, the only company that has been performing searching and preliminary examination of PCT applications for the USPTO since 2005.

This global course is not tied to a particular search engine, database product, or patent information service.  Instead, the instructors teach skills that are applicable across resources, both proprietary and public, and without bias toward the features of a particular search engine.  All attendees will have an opportunity to practice hands-on patent searching alongside the instructors on the final afternoon of class.  Attendees must bring their own wireless-enabled laptops, as well as have their own patent search engine user accounts.

The cost of this three-day course is only €2099 + 19% VAT.  For additional details on the location, hours, and course content and to register, please visit our event page for this course.  Spaces are limited – register soon!

Landon IP Partners With Marks and Clerk On Patent Landscape Report For Microbial Infection POC Diagnostics

Landon IP, the patent analytics and consulting arm of CPA Global, has partnered with intellectual property firm Marks & Clerk on a patent landscape report for microbial infection point-of-care (POC) diagnostics, charting patent filing behaviour for microbial infection POC diagnostics tests between 2009 and 2014.

The patent landscape study, titled “Microbial Infections: Point-of-care Diagnostics“, was undertaken in support of the Longitude Prize, a $10 million prize fund aimed at boosting global healthcare and conserving antibiotics for future generations. The Longitude Prize is powered by UK-based innovation foundation, Nesta, and government-backed funding partner Innovate UK.

The Longitude Prize is focused on discovering a fast, accurate, easy-to-use, cost-effective test for diagnosing microbial infections that will be used by healthcare professionals worldwide to detect infections and administer the antibiotics at the right time.
