Workshop reminder: EPSRC research project on the future of patent analytics

As part of an EPSRC funded research project our Intellectual Property and Innovation Management (IIPM) group at the Institute for Manufacturing, University of Cambridge will host a workshop on 3 March to discuss the future of patent analytics. Attendance is for a selected people who can work together to push the boundaries of patent analytics. We aim for a balanced mix of academics, who specialize in patent information, innovation and decision making, experts in novel technologies so far hardly applied to patent analytics, lead users of patent data and software (e.g. large companies customers), and carefully selected representatives from innovative consultancies and vendors.

The workshop is limited to 20 places and booking look very promissing. Hurry up to register your interest here!
