As part 1 and 2 of the "Basic Course European Patent Rights and Patent Practice" are independent of each other, there is no need for participants to have taken the first part of the course already before participating in the second one. The first part will be presented once more in 2020 - 2021.
The Expert Group Intellectual Property of ie-net organizes for the 16th time the Basic Course European Patent Rights and Patent Practice. It is organized with the support of the "Centre d'Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle" (University of Strasbourg).
The second year (2019-2020) starts on 26 September 2019.
In this day and age of fast-evolving technological developments, protection of innovation, investments and markets is of the utmost importance. This implies a.o. skilful drafting of patent applications and advising and supporting the patenting process in all its aspects.
In this Basic Course, the field of intellectual property (with emphasis on European, US and Belgian Law) is explained through exercises and lectures on Patent Law, Patent Practice, Case Law, and developments in the jurisdiction of the European Patent Office. The course is based on the European Patent Convention (EPC), with attention for the peculiarities of US and Belgian patent law and practice.
The tutors are all national and/or European patent attorneys practicing in Belgium, both in industry and in private practice.
The Basic Course targets everyone who is involved in intellectual property, in particular scientists, R&D managers and attorneys at law, for example as a patent adviser, patent manager or patent attorney in training. The course is also a thorough basis (albeit not a complete preparation) for those who are training for the European Qualifying Examination (EQE).
