USPTO launches online platform named the “Expanding Innovation Hub”

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has launched a centralized online platform named the “Expanding Innovation Hub” to make the patent process more accessible to diverse inventors.

The Hub is comprised of three components:  (1) the “Demystifying the Patent System” toolkit, designed to help inventors understand the process for obtaining a patent; (2) a mentoring toolkit that is intended to assist organizations in establishing an infrastructure to “connect experienced innovators with the next generation” of inventors within their organization; and (3) the Community Group Resources component to help organizations establish an infrastructure to connect groups of employees with shared characteristics, interests, and goals.
