Happy Halloween Everyone!
This past week on Patinformatics.com the focus was on Europe and two patent-related conferences held there this month. In the first, props are given to EPO President Benoît Battistelli on attending and commenting on patent information user groups and his attendance at the 2013 EPO Patent Information Conference. Examples of cooperation between user groups and the world’s patent offices were discussed.
In the second post, selected presentations and the full Twitter feed associated with the 2013 International Conference on Trends for Scientific Information Professionals Conference (ICIC) were provided. The meeting brought together more than 100 information professionals from around the world discussing major issues in scientific and patent information in Vienna, Austria.
