“TEKNOFRAM – Board Game for Patent Searching”

TEKNOFRAM is a game played with a game board and cards to enhance the learning process of patent searching for participants via interactive challenges. It is designed for participants who want to learn patent searching effectively. Each team has four members with different roles, such as patent agent, entrepreneur, and technology expert and market analyst.
All teams have one mission. We give a technology name, for instance "a coffee machine", and teams try to find exact patent documents for this selected technology by following the rules. Different playing cards define actions for the teams. TEKNOFRAM can be played in one and a half hours with up to 30 participants. All the participants need to have at least some basic knowledge of patent information. Participants should have their laptops and smartphones to tackle various challenges.
