The course is not intended for those with a degree in computer science or similar.


Gain technical insight:

  • A detailed understanding of the special eligibility rules for software patents
  • Appreciation of how software is built from components allowing reuse and sharing, and the specifics of licensing of software components.
  • when software may constitute a medical device or diagnostic tool

Plus practical skills:

  • An understanding of the concepts and jargon of software development in order to interact effectively with inventors
  • What questions to ask a software inventor at disclosure, and the implications of the answers for the prospects of the software

Trainers are leading practitioners in the field and share their own in-depth experiences of the challenges faced.
