Certificate course in Patent Search Techniques for Researchers [PST-R]

It is estimated that about 30% of R&D expenditures have been wasted on reinventing the wheel. The prime reason for this is that researchers review research papers but miss out on patent search at the time of designing the research. Patents not only provide valuable information from different areas of science and technology but also helps a researcher to monitor innovation strategies of other players in the field very early on.

Learning Patent search with the usage of right keywords and search strategies is the need of the hour for the researchers to extract fruitful outcome from research. This will not only ensure better outcome but also align research with industry needs. The PST-R course  has been designed by experts to facilitate researchers to develop the skill of performing a patent search to improve the quality of their research.
