An applicant interested in obtaining a European patent based on an international application needs to take the steps required for the so-called “entry into the European phase” within 31-months from the filing/priority date of an international application. The webinar will provide an overview of the requirements for entry into the European phase and of the procedural options available to the applicant at this stage of the procedure for the grant of a European patent.
The speaker is an experienced PCT lawyer from the directorate in charge of European and international legal affairs.
Registration is free of charge and on a first-come-first served basis. There is a waiting list. The session will be recorded and uploaded in the EPO’s e-learning centre later on.
