Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office

"UP/UPC Education" Working Group (jointly set up with the EPPC and the LitCom)

The implementation of the Unitary Patent and Unified Patent Court system will
significantly affect the daily work of epi members. PEC has the responsibility of providing training for epi members to prepare for the new systems. As a result, in autumn 2013 PEC established a joint WG consisting of PEC-, EPPC- and LitCom members.
This WG will set up a training programme to address the needs of the different target groups and level of knowledge across the profession.
