This digital workshop will focus on the challenges of patent granting in the fields of geophysics and drilling technology, where computer implemented inventions always change the nature of the inventions. It will also address the assessment of inventive step and claims lacking features with a technical effect in these fields.
- Patenting trends and activity in the fields of geophysics and drilling technology
- Examples of applications from these fields
- The practice at the European Patent Office (EPO), including how to use the Guidelines for Examination
