Are you conducting research related to intellectual property? The MIT Libraries and the Technology Licensing Office will review the best tools for this type of research, especially in the areas of patents and market research. Nick Albaugh, Management and Social Sciences Librarian for Innovation & Entrepreneurship from MIT Libraries, and Jonathan Hromi, Intellectual Property Officer from MIT TLO, will discuss the following topics:

  • The difference between prior art and market searching
  • How patent searching can inform market analysis
  • Tools to use to create a comprehensive commercialization plan

You'll also see a sample market analysis based on AI technology.

This session is part of the "2020 Intellectual Property Speaker Series" co-sponsored by the Technology Licensing Office and MIT Libraries. Lunch will be provided to attendees of the Intellectual Property Speaker Series events. Please register for the seminar and for lunch.


We will also be giving away some branded MIT Libraries and Technology Licensing Office swag to participants who attend any 6 sessions from this series, so please check out our other sessions!
