From Conception to the Patent Office: Women Inventors Across the US and EU
Join us on April 26, 2023 at 12:30-1:30 pm (ET) – World IP Day - as we celebrate the achievements of women inventors, creators, and entrepreneurs.
The European Patent Office (EPO) published a study in November 2022 looking at women’s participation in inventive activity across time, country, technology and applicant type. Despite there being more women graduates in STEM fields, the number of women inventors trails behind the number of male inventors.
During the panel, we will discuss the key findings of this EPO study, provide a comparison within the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO), and discuss potential shared solutions to this common transatlantic issue. Panelists will provide their perspective from the patent office, academia and industry.
