Forthcoming epi Educational Events
UP/UPC Seminars 2017
In 2017 epi will resume the series of one day seminars on the Unitary Patent (UP) and the Unitary Patent Court (UPC) that began in 2016.
The seminars will provide knowledge of unitary patent protection and the Unified Patent Court (UPC) to allow epi members to work with the new system and to advise clients on strategic choices, for example on whether to request unitary effect for their European patents, or when and whether to opt out of the UPC.
A number of the seminars 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%).
