Patents are useful resources to identify new research. But patents are not as easy to find as articles. On December 14th, the Library and the Netherlands Patent Office is organizing a free workshop for the WUR community.

In this workshop we will show you how to search in the free patent database Espacenet. You will also have the opportunity to search for patents yourself and to ask questions.

  • 10 am - 11.30 am: How to use EspaceNet, introduction (Dik van Harte, Netherlands Patent Office)
  • 11.30 am - 1 pm : Hands-on training and questions.

If you are unable to attend the introduction, please feel free to come to the hands-on training to ask your questions.

Spring 2017 the Library will organize a training on how to search in the ORBIT patent database.

Venue: Forum, room 652

Date and time: Wednesday 14 December, from 10 am - 1 pm

The workshop is free. To register, please send an email to
