Event Details

Know the latest ins-and-outs concerning examination, opposition and appeal proceedings before the EPO. Be updated on the unitary patent and the unified patent court. Anyone wishing to increase his or her working knowledge of procedures for European patents, or designs as, for instance, strategic complements or alternatives to patents, should register now for the fourth edition of V.O.’s bi-annual IP seminar! The seminar warrants learning in a relaxed atmosphere and offers ample opportunity to meet interesting IP colleagues to expand your network!

Excellent two-day seminar program

The seminar is particularly designed for in-house IP departments and non-European patent practitioners who want to improve their practical understanding of the European patent system.The essential aspects of this system will be addressed in a series of in-depth presentations by key experts.

Further, in anticipation of the unitary patent and the unified patent court, we are on the eve of Europe’s biggest change in patent law in decades. How should we adapt our present patent strategies to these changes? And what impact will Brexit have on all this? The European Patent Seminar will provide workable answers to these and other questions. Last but not least, the seminar will also fill you in on the latest developments before the EPO and the GPTO.

Including outings
Part of the seminar package is an outstanding outing program. We will visit Pinakothek der Moderne of the Design Museum and of course the exciting Oktoberfest. Also a guided city trip to the beautiful city of Salzburg and a visit to the famous Hellbrunn Castle and its trick fountains are part of the program.

Seminar fee
The early bird fee (until 31 may 2019) for attending the two-day seminar is € 750 (normal € 850). This includes: seminar participation, lunch on both days, dinner on 23 September and all outings (Pinakothek der Moderne, the Design Museum, Oktoberfest and daytrip to Salzburg).

Accompanying persons
Accompanying persons can be registered for joining lunches/dinners and outings for a fee of € 200 per accompanying person.
