With a renewed approach the Expert Group Intellectual Property of ie-net started its two-year course in European Patent Law and Patent Practice again in January 2023. In doing so we wanted to respond better to the expectations of our participants.
From this 18th edition the course starts each 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 focus even more on gaining insight into European patent law. This allows participants to apply the acquired knowledge more quickly in their daily work.
In the first year (2023), after introducing the world of patent law, we focused on obtaining patentable claims reports supported by the description and figures. In the second year (2024) the emphasis will be on procedural patent law to obtain a granted patent via EPC or via the PCT route. The different stakeholders and their role in this process are outlined. The legal value of the thus granted patent is discussed.
As years 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 course is organized with the support of the "Centre d'Etudes Internationales de la Propriété Intellectuelle" (University of Strasbourg).
The first year will be on the agenda again in 2025.
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.
