Tutorial on Patents

Following a call for projects to “Support innovative educational projects” (SPIF) issued by PSL in March 2015, an interactive multimedia tutorial on patents created by the Paris URFIST (regional unit for scientific and technical training), administratively under the umbrella of Ecole Nationale des Chartes, is now freely accessibly online.

The aim of this 10-module tutorial is to help students become familiar with and understand patents, a cornerstone of research and innovation.
It is designed for doctoral candidates, researchers, engineers, and start-up creators wishing to learn more about industrial property and the specific requirements for a patentable invention (introduction, objectives, challenges, analysis, filing, research).

Each module presents one aspect of the process in video format, via interactive courses with examples or interviews with researchers and experts (Bruno Rostand, Director of Innovation and Entrepreneurship at PSL; Yann de Karmadec, expert in management of innovation and industrial property; Manuel Durand-Barthez, instructor at URFIST).
