Over the last 20 years, a great deal of effort has been put into advancing the use of IP analytics in research. The largest hurdle –easing access to patent information– is more or less resolved. However, there is a shortage of guidance for researchers on the use of patent analytics, and in-depth exploration is still limited to a few academic centers.
VPInstitute is sponsoring an Advanced IP Analytics for Research Workshop to discuss a path forward to creating resources for the use of IP analytics in research. Registration is free, although limited to 25 audience participants. Click HERE to register.
Wednesday – October 16, 2019
2:00 – 5:00 PM
Centergy One Building
The workshop will use a Round Table format with an invited panel foci. After workshop organizer opening comments, each of the invited panel participants will deliver a short statement. This will be followed by discussions among the panelists and, if time allows, open questions from audience participants. The workshop will be held in the Hodges Room of the Georgia Tech Centergy Building, home of the Georgia Tech Science, Technology and Innovation Policy program.

KEY Questions for Panelists
- How do others use IP? Where do academic researchers see this field going in the next five years?
- How does IP analytics feed into answering the bigger questions that people want answers to?
- What do we need to do to get us there, and how do we make it better? (e.g. the role of machine learning and other AI tools)
