Innovation Analytics Academy - Provided by LexisNexis PatentSight
Our new educational program on “Business Opportunities and Insights” will show how patent data and patent analytics may be used to gain insights into the innovative activities of incumbent firms as well as young startups with disruptive technological solutions. 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. Participation in multiple session is offered at a discount. In addition to all other discounts for booking multiple sessions (see our website), we are able to offer PIUG members an additional 15 percent discount on all prices.
