This research will analyse the differences, in law, practice and effect, relating to the patent examination procedure in Australia, the US and Europe. By including quantitative and qualitative data, this project will produce a detailed plan for the incorporation of Australia’s best interests in the inevitable future reforms to the harmonising of national patent systems. This is a 3-year project supported by an ARC Linkage Grant and partly funded by IP Australia and the Institute of Patent and Trade Mark Attorneys of Australia (IPTA), the collaborating research partners.
