Search Matters is an annual event that not only showcases the European Patent Office's patent search strategies and techniques, but also offers an unrivalled look behind the scenes at the EPO.
In 2019, Search Matters will be held in Munich. In a series of workshops, EPO examiners will provide useful information about, for example:

  • the impact of AI and Blockchain on search
  • search strategies
  • Asian prior art
  • search tools such as Espacenet and Patstat
  • complexity of searching in automotive, ICT and chemistry fields

One of the highlights of the programme, which covers a wide range of technical fields, is the chance for participants to spend half a day with individual examiners "at-the-desk" and discuss with them about how they search in specific technical areas.

The programme is rounded off by plenary lectures and a round table on the hopes and fears of the searcher and the future of search in an AI and Blockchain landscape.

Who should attend

Patent search professionals from business, academia and IP firms.
