Report from WIPO Workshop on Patent Analytics and Additional Workshop Dates

This post provides details on the World Intellectual Property Organization’s (WIPO) Regional Workshop on Patent Analytics that was held August 26th-28th in Rio de Janeiro, and was jointly organized by the National Institute of Industrial Property (INPI) of Brazil. Patent analysis, and in particular the generation of patent landscape reports (PLRs), continues to gain in popularity as a tool for strategic decision-making, both in the public, and private sectors. WIPO initially began to call attention to the importance of this area, and then followed up by beginning to procure PLRs on a variety of topics of interest to developing countries. The organization has now started taking steps to build on the existing repertoire by including lessons, and best practices on the generation of quality patent analytics, and reports. Part of this process includes the creation of guidelines for the preparation of PLRs, which was the subject of this workshop. The post also mentions additional training opportunities available in Europe and India, in October, and November respectively, being provided by Patinformatics, LLC.
