No booking required: places are limited to 35 and available on a first come, first served basis

Overview

This workshop will provide an overview of patent systems and how to search for patents using UCD Library and freely available resources.

Patents are highly valued assets for innovative companies operating in the increasingly knowledge-based global economy. Recent years have seen a significant increase in the filing of patent applications.
