How to detect your patentable invention?
Is my invention still available?

Invention Mining can help you identifying and capturing worthwhile inventions within your business.

In order to know whether an invention is new, a search must be performed in the prior art. If an innovation needs to be implemented, it is foremost recommended to perform a freedom-to-operate search.

Existing patent rights of third have an impact on your freedom to operate. Therefore it is recommended to perform a landscaping exercise to know what patents already exist and to what extend they might be able to forbid a certain process within your organization.Whenever  inventions are identified, make sure they are not made public and only discuss with other parties under confidentiality. Invest time in writing and drawing the innovation well with the help of a patent attorney before filing a patent application.

Patentability opinions should ideally be preceded by a review of the invention in its technical and commercial development contexts, with a view to optimize the exclusivity potential.
