Basic Course European Patent Rights & Patent Practice - 1st year

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.

Target group

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).
