Paper Abstract

The importance of information as a driving force in innovation is well established. The problem of providing interested users with access to information concerning inventions and technology development is a major issue which directly affects the innovation process. With these thoughts n iind, I would like to begin by briefly reviewing the elements of the patent document. Secondly, I would like to explore with you the various ways in which patent information may be used by public and private R&D managers to aid in the process of technology assessment and forecasting.
