Training: How to use patent data to understand trends in technology, plan research projects and develop innovation strategy

Dear all,

We are happy to invite you to the training: How to use patent data to understand trends in technology, plan research projects and develop innovation strategy.

When: Monday 17 February, 14:00 to 15:00 Room: E-R3-C2-2008

When: Tuesday 18 February, 14:00 to 15:00 Room: E-B2-3005

In order to register please send a request on the following email:


Is your research really as unique as you think?

How can you use patent data to help plan your research projects, win grants and support innovation?

How can you quickly map technological trends and opportunities related to your research?

How can you obtain comprehensive information about patents worldwide in your field?

How can you identify previously unknown research groups worldwide, in industry and universities, who do R&D in your field?


Skoltech has subscribed to a powerful yet easy-to-use patent database and analytics platform — “Cipher” — that is available to everybody at Skoltech to help answer these questions.

Cipher is an online product, harnessing artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze patent portfolios internationally. In comparison to conventional approaches, Cipher is a fast and cost-effective method that allows you to gain an in-depth analytical understanding of patent ownership, competitive landscaping, and technology landscaping. Cipher can help you to quickly identify who is doing research and technical work in your field of interest, identify where they are located worldwide, know with whom they collaborate, identify which centers are either growing or declining, and understand who owns the results, to mention just some of the applications.

The training session will introduce how to use Cipher as a tool in research and innovation projects at Skoltech. This will be a hands-on training session, so please bring your laptop with you.
