CPE Webinars

The PEC "epi members and paralegals" working group and the epi Education Team believe that webinars are an effective and useful tool in spreading information.

We plan to establish webinars as an ongoing part of our education activities. Webinars are particularly suited to disseminate information urgently to large numbers of attendees, and to provide in-depth education to a smaller number of participants.

We will keep you informed of scheduled webinars, here.


epi/EPO "Guidelines2DAY" webinar series 2014

Description

epi together with the European Patent Academy is setting up a series of webinars called "Guidelines2DAY" giving participants an update on the new Guidelines 2013. This webinar series is a follow-up to the successful "Guidelines2DAY" seminars held in 15 European cities from 2011 to 2013.

The webinars provide an overview of changes to the Guidelines and their impact on a patent practitioner's daily work.

Experienced epi and EPO speakers will give the online lectures together to provide the audience with views from both sides on specific topics.

Each webinar will start with a recorded lecture (duration about 45 min) followed by a live "Question and Answer" session (duration about 15 minutes). During and after the recorded lecture participants may send questions that will be answered directly by the speakers during the second part of the webinar.

Participants can only register for the whole series.
If a participant misses an online lecture, it will be possible to view the webinar recording at any time later on.
