In order to provide the necessary support to the members of DEMM (being them faculty, research fellows, PhDs or students) in the use of the newly acquired dataset PATSTAT, CEEDS organised a series of seminars in the form of hands-on tutorials.

The seminars were held by Gianluca Tarasconi, dataset architect at Bocconi University and expert on the use of PATSTAT. The seminars aimed at providing attendants with basic skills in the understanding, extraction and analysis of patent data.
