We would like to invite you to a workshop where Thorunn Grenmark from KTH Innovation will describe how you should prepare when you want to apply for a patent, and what parts a patent consists of. Then Maria and Miritt from the KTH Library will give you a quick overview of searching in patent databases. There will be exercises where you will have the opportunity to explore the databases hands on.

This workshop is mainly for doctoral students and researchers. You are welcome to participate even if you are affiliated to another university than KTH. We will show both openly available search tools and resources that require a subscription and that you may not have access to. The workshop is held in English.
