Professional Development Opportunities
Patents Online: Discover Trends in Research and Product Development
Learn how to search patents and patent applications with an overview of intellectual property.
Patents have more detailed information about a technology than any other type of scientific or technical publication. They can be used to discover new areas of research, for ideas to improve existing research, or to see if a product has already been developed.
This will be a hands-on class with time at the end for searching and for questions and answers.
