July 29, 2019: ninety days out and counting down. On October 27, 2019, patent researchers from around the world will gather in Bucharest, Romania for the welcoming celebrations of the second annual Patent Olympiad. The next morning those same researchers will gather in a single room, fire up their research tools and push the limits of their creativity and expertise in a gruelling, multi-part challenge of their patent research skills. Only three will earn the honour of being Patent Olympiad Champions for 2019. Will one of them be you?
RWS and Patent Olympiad: Partnering AgainWe at Patent Olympiad are happy to say that we are partnering with RWS IP Services once again. RWS Researchers featured prominently in the competition last year and we hope that we will see some familiar faces again this year. We would love to see more of you join us, too. As we did last year, we are delivering the exam using a platform that should be familiar to the RWS Researcher community: AOP Connect™. It is a platform that works incredibly well for hosting patent research competitions, so it is a great fit. We are delighted to be working closely with your Director of Community, Kathryn Lampron. Kathryn and the team provided us with incredible support throughout the planning process last year. They – and their faith in us as an untried event – were a huge part of the success of the first Patent Olympiad.
