Webinar: Patent Espionage for Getting a Headstart in the Market.

September 14 @ 11:30 am - 12:30 pm AEST


N Maxwell (1)

Presenter: Dr Nicola Maxwell
Organisation: IP Solved Pty Ltd

Everyone is talking about big data, and so are we, only our data of choice is patent data.
The patent dataset can create a patent landscape that looks for innovation hot spots or so called “white space” – a space in which technology has yet to commercially populate.
The patent landscape can also identify (and spy on) competitors, and/or find collaboration partners holding valuable IP rights that might complement your own developing portfolio.

In this webinar, Part 1 in a two-webinar series on The Power of the Patent, Dr Nicola Maxwell from IP Solved will explain how patent analytics can support your business decisions, licensing, identifying markets, and market pathways.
