In 2016 epi will start a series of one day seminars on the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unitary Patent Court (UPC). The seminars will take place in 2016 and early 2017.
The seminars will provide knowledge of both systems to allow epi members to work with the systems and to advise clients on strategic choices, for example on opting out of the UPC, and UP versus classical individual state validation.
