Screening

The purpose of a screening is to quickly obtain an overview of the development of a technology in a recent period. Generally a screening is based on patent data only.

State of the Art

The purpose of the State of the Arts search is to gain a comprehensive overview of a technology or a product. This search is done ideally before any R&D investment and can impact the selection of new innovation projects. This comprehensive search includes patent and non-patent literature.

Freedom to operate

The purpose of a freedom-to-operate search is to make sure that our product doesn’t infringe a patent that is still in-force. This research focuses on any granted patent covering the invention and any patent application that may be granted.

Patentability & Novelty

The purpose of a patentability search is to identify all relevant documents that may prevent patenting. The result of a patentability search can be used to optimize the scope of claims when writing a patent application. The coverage of this search should include everything that has been made available to the public.

Landscape

A technology landscape provides a comprehensive overview of a specific field of technology or company in a given region at a given time. The technology landscape seeks to answer specific questions and can help to identify current and future competitors, determine areas of white space for potential innovation, evaluate IP risk, or explore opportunities for patent monetization. This kind of analysis is mainly based on patent, but may also include non-patent documents, such as market data.

Asian Information

Chine, Japan, Korea, Russia

Asian documents

In 2015, more than a third of patent documents published worldwide are originating from an Asian country, and more than a fifth are written in Chinese.

This trend is also true for scientific publications. This huge volume of documents is difficult to access for non-Chinese speakers.

Acquisition

We test and select the best tools in the market for Asian information search. We have access to a large number of databases covering patents, scientific literature and web information.

Exploitation

To face the explosion of the number of Asian documents published around the world, we are constantly developing new tools to help with the selection and classification of these documents. We also offer translation services for texts and figures.

Use

Once the information is collected, selected and classified, it must be disseminated and analyzed. With the help of our network of experts, we can assist you throughout this valuation phase.
