The offers of the PATONakademie are aimed at employees, scientists and executives from companies, universities, research institutions and start-ups who wish to continue their education in the field of industrial property rights (IPR).

In the field of IPR, we offer more than 40 different seminars on the following topics:

  • patent, trademark and design law

  • patent, trademark and design search
  • IP management

Our day and half-day seminars range from basic seminars to special seminars covering current topics of IPR for advanced students. All seminars are usually offered once a year. The current seminar program is published every six months.

Our speakers are experienced experts from the European Patent Office, the German Patent and Trademark Office and various patent law firms as well as employees of PATON. The topics and contents are constantly adapted to the current developments and requirements of the participants.

The further education programme with university certificate of the TU Ilmenau enables a qualification as patent engineer/patent manager or patent searcher.
