    Solid-State Li-Ion Batteries – Key Technology Approaches & Time-to-Market

    Attendees will learn which solid-state batteries have been launched already into beachhead markets, and which technology barriers for now prevent deployment in mass EV applications. Risks & opportunities identified in IP portfolios by large battery & automotive manufacturers and key startups will be compared with go-to-market & technology readiness statements. Finally, we will explain why hybrid battery packs or cells based on both liquid and solid electrolytes could potentially accelerate the automotive adoption of solid-state batteries.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Solid-state Li-ion batteries
    • Key innovation approaches & global patent literature
    • Time-to-market with respect to key applications: electronics/IoT, medical implants, automotive/rolling stock, stationary energy storage
    • Examples of solid electrolyte, cathode & anode selection
    • Combination of solid electrolytes with liquid electrolytes at the pack or cell level

    Patenting Inventions Course 3/3: International Battery Patent Battles

    In the first three months of 2021, the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) announced two investigations related to patented battery technology. Later in 2021, the ITC is scheduled to issue decisions in two additional investigations relating to lithium-ion battery cells. This talk will present a case study highlighting the impact of the ITC on the battery industry.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Why is the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) a popular venue for battery litigation?
    • What types of disputes can be litigated before the ITC?
    • Recent activity in ITC battery litigation

    Patenting Inventions Course 2/3: Battery Patents at the Patent Trial and Appeal Board

    The Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB), within the United States Patent and Trademark Office, provides an alternative to federal court litigation on issues of patent validity. The PTAB conducts trials, including inter partes, post-grant reviews and derivation proceedings, as well as hears appeals from adverse examiner decisions in patent applications and reexamination proceedings. This webinar will review battery patent activity before the PTAB, such A123’s petition to institute inter partes review against Long Hua Technology Co., Ltd’s US Patent No. 7,803,484 directed to LiFePO4 cathodes.

    This webinar will focus on the following key topics:

    • Why is the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB)?
    • What types of disputes can be litigated before the PTAB?
    • Recent battery patent activity before the PTAB
