More resources and training in intellectual property (IP) issues will be made available to business advisers as part of a new innovation and research growth strategy unveiled last week by the Department for Business (BIS).
The report mentions PATLIB :
the UK, including the Business and IP Centre based in the British Library in London.
The service provision varies across the network; all provide access to literature on IP,
but some are able to offer free sessions with advisors, support on patent and trade
mark searching and commercial IP services. The IPO will work with the PatLibnetwork to improve the wider offering of the entire network."
