epi seminars on the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) 2016/2017
November 24, 2015
In 2016 epi will start a series of one day seminars on the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unified 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.
A number of the seminars (relating to changes in the EPC to accommodate the UP) will be held jointly with the EPO, with expert speakers from both the epi and the EPO.
The fee to attend the one day seminars will be:
380€ for epi members, 190€ for epi students and 480€ for non-epi members/non-epi students (for seminars in B-countries there will be a discount of 50%).
The concrete dates and locations will be announced within the next months. Further details of this seminar series will be released in mailings to epi members in and website updates.
