CIIPM announces autumn training and events programme


Cambridge Information and IP Meeting (CIIPM) has planned a programme of training courses taking place through the autumn and into 2022.

CIIPM writes:

In the autumn, take the opportunity to refresh your skills and expand your knowledge with our fundamental and advanced Freedom to Operate courses.  If you are new to patent searching, we recommend taking Core Patent Search Skills first.

For those interested in commercialisation of technologies, consider our IP and Commercialisation courses. IP & Commercialisation, Part 2 – IP in the Ecosystem is a new course for 2021, focusing on finding markets for your technology and monitoring competitors.

The CIIPM training programme is as follows:

  • 22-23 September – Core Patent Search Skills

  • 13-14 October – Freedom to Operate Search & Analysis - Fundamental

  • 10-11 November – Freedom to Operate Search & Analysis - Advanced

  • 8-9 December – IP & Commercialisation, Part 1 – IP Rights and IP Management

  • 19-20 January 2022 – IP & Commercialisation, Part 2 – IP in the Ecosystem

All training courses take place virtually in two 1.5 hour sessions over two days. For full details, visit the CIIPM website:

On 15 December, CIIPM’s 6th meeting will take place. Our theme this time is ‘Disruption and the Innovation Lifecycle’. Sign up to our email list via our website, to receive updates on this and other events.
