The procedures relating to the Unitary Patent and the Unified patent court shall also be presented.
Staff of the national offices of the EPO member states, as well as extension states
On completion of this seminar participants will have a clear understanding and knowledge of the legal and practical aspects of the patenting process for European applications.
Participants must have sufficient knowledge of the patent system and a very good command of English, both orally and in writing.
