"UFFICIO STUDI E PATLIB"
PatLib is the name given to a network of centres throughout Europe providing information on patents. It was established to promote and encourage the use of patents, and was aimed at researchers, industrial operators and anyone else who might benefit from increased access to technical and scientific information.
Ufficio Studi e PatLib was established as the result of an initiative by AREA Science Park that, having acquired extensive experience in patent documentation, increased the information base and widened the scope of the service. The number of sources available is indeed vast and can be tailored to specific needs. Integration with the other structures created by AREA to advance technology transfer also increases modularity and synergy between the various opportunities and services available.
A very wide and flexible range of information, providing answers to the most diverse questions, can be obtained from the patents: from prior-case assessment to the identification of innovative technologies, from the search for partnership opportunities to competition monitoring, from the prediction of development trends in individual sectors to the control of the potential use of technical solutions protected by expired patents.
To make this possible, AREA provides highly qualified staff with the necessary competences and skills specific to patent-documentalists – new and highly specialized professionals on the market.
