Requirements for patenting skills


A Seminar on patenting skills was arranged by the IPR cell for the faculty members on 6.9.2019. The seminar was handled by Dr. K.Mahendran of EEE department. He explained about the thrust areas of the patents and how to chose the area of research. He explained that research should be concentrated on small areas and not on broad sectors and research should provide solution to a problem. This could be easily patented. An NPTEL video on patenting was played following his session. About 17 faculty and students attended the seminar.
