Learn more about the possibilities the patent system can offer when it comes to computer implemented inventions in the health sector.

We present current trends and perspectives in the Norwegian and Nordic health industry, and give you an understanding of who the European and global patent players are in this field.

Concrete examples on how algorithms can be protected by patents will be presented, together with the patenting challenges linked to this very particular technical field.

Central topics 

  • Patenting activity in the health sector
  • Patenting figures in the medtech field in the health sector
  • Computer Implemented Inventions for medical devices
  • Patenting challenges: exceptions and exclusions from patentability
