SORAINEN and the European Patent Office (EPO) is proud to invite you to a discussion with EPO patent examiners on 17 June in Riga.

Every year the EPO organises visits by its patent examiners to industry and patent law firms working in particular technical areas in EPO member states in order to maintain contacts with inventors and patent lawyers. This year the visit will be to the Baltic States and will focus on the area of biotechnology. SORAINEN is happy to be a coordinating partner for this visit.

The meeting will facilitate communication on a personal level and is considered beneficial for discussing approaches by the EPO in specific technical areas.

Key topics:

  • introduction of the EPO;
  • recent changes/developments in search and examination procedures;
