In the course, he introduced PCT and enterprise patent management, focusing on the scope of PCT treaty, application process and strategy, patent development trends, patent strategy significance and function and overseas patent risk. The students took their first steps in understanding PCT applications, patent layout and use and developed an understanding of patent strategy and other related topics.
