Every year, the EPO offers a limited number of three to six-month internships to engineering and science students who hold the minimum requirement of a technical bachelor's (or equivalent level) degree.
This is a unique opportunity to discover one of the world's leading patent offices and to work in a truly international environment. Interns work side by side with examiners who tutor them throughout the internship. They carry out complex re-classification work on patent applications and receive training relating to patents and other areas of IP, and various aspects of an examiner's work.
The next internships start on 20 March 2017. This date is compulsory.
