VESPA launches ‘epi Roundtable’ – sign-up now for August 28 to save your spot!

German version below.

All European patent attorneys are members of the Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office (epi). epi represents the interests of its members in relation to the EPO. In this respect, the European Patent Practice Committee (EPPC) with its various technology groups and working groups is an important body that deals with issues that arise in daily practice.

A large number of epi committees is staffed with Swiss members. The lively exchange between the members of the Association of Swiss and European patent attorneys in private practice (VESPA) and the delegates is essential. Therefore, VESPA launches the ‘epi Roundtable’, to establish a platform for VESPA members to get first-hand information about current projects and changes at the EPO. On the other hand, it also is a chance to point the delegates to issues that should be dealt with in the EPPC or other epi committees, and to discuss questions they might have relating to epi and the EPO.

Time: 5:15 – 7:15 pm

Alle europäisch zugelassenen Patentanwälte sind Mitglied des Instituts der beim Europäischen Patentamt zugelassenen Vertreter (epi). Dieser Verband nimmt die Interessen seiner Mitglieder in der Zusammenarbeit mit dem EPA wahr. Ein für Fragen der täglichen Praxis wichtiges Gremium ist das European Patent Practice Committee (EPPC) mit seinen diversen Technologie- und Arbeitsgruppen.

Die Schweiz stellt Delegierte in sehr vielen epi-Ausschüssen. Wesentlich ist der lebendige Austausch zwischen den Mitgliedern des Verbands der freiberuflichen Europäischen und Schweizer Patentanwälte (VESPA) und den Delegierten. Dafür ruft der VESPA den ‘epi Roundtable’ ins Leben. Er soll eine Plattform sein, über welche sich die VESPA-Mitglieder einerseits aus erster Hand über aktuelle Projekte und Änderungen beim EPA informieren können. Andererseits bietet er auch die Möglichkeit, den Delegierten Anliegen zur Einspeisung und Vertretung im EPPC oder in anderen epi-Gremien zu unterbreiten und Fragen zu aktuellen Themen im Zusammenhang mit dem epi oder dem EPA zu stellen.

Datum: 28. August 2018
Zeit: 17:15 – 19:15 Uhr
anschliessend Apéro riche
Ort: Au Premier
