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

     ie-net leden en bedrijfspartners: € 2.275 ipv € 3.250

Starting January 2023, the Expert Group Intellectual Property of ie-net will be offering the two-year course in European Patent Law and Practice again. With a renewed approach, we want to respond better to the expectations of our participants.
From this 18th edition we start each course year in January to end in December of the same year. In this way, our course fits in better with other, more specific courses on European or national patent law.
We will focus even more on gaining insight into European patent law. This allows participants to apply the acquired knowledge more quickly in their daily work.

During the first year, the emphasis will be on substantive patent law. In the second year, we will delve deeper into procedural patent law.
Finally, the lessons are better coordinated with each other, with each lesson building on the already seen material. We provide more exercises, which are also designed in such a way that they can be reused during the course year.

The course is organized with the support of the "Centre d'Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle" (University of Strasbourg).
The second year will be on the agenda in 2024.

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 advisor, patent manager or patent attorney in training.
