Throughout the Simulation Lab, participants engaged in various sessions that covered:

Patents & Patent Search Techniques:
Participants were introduced to patent searches underscoring the importance of understanding what constitutes a patent. The discussions delved deeper into the theoretical aspects of crafting queries for patent searches. These sessions, enhanced with demonstrations and video tutorials, provided practical insights into the complexities of query construction. Participants engaged actively, benefiting from real-time answers to their queries, which facilitated a deeper understanding of the subject matter.
