This seminar aims to present the EPO to patent attorney support staff and to provide them with the knowledge of administrative and formal aspects of the European patent grant procedure that is commonly required in daily practice. It will include aspects of the Receiving Section procedure and provide an overview of how a standard file is prosecuted during Examination proceedings. Special attention will be given to recent legal and procedural changes. The event will be enriched by the opportunity to meet and talk with formalities officers at their working place, discussing examples of best practice and efficient cooperation. An EPO examiner will also present his work. A question & answer session on EPO Online Services will round up the seminar.
We offer two different seminars for patent attorney support staff. If you do not consider the basic seminar suitable, you can find further information about the advanced seminar in our complete training programme for patent attorney support staff in the download section.
