The second EPO Online Services User Day of 2014 will be held in Stockholm from 1 to 2 October.
It is aimed primarily at patent attorneys, applicants, support staff and IT staff responsible for the technical implementation of Online Filing.
The highlight will be the launch of the next generation of EPO Online Filing. The new service, which has been piloted over the last year, allows you to file patent applications with the EPO without having to install filing software. You simply access it via the EPO's website.
You will have an opportunity to try out the service during a hands-on workshop on the afternoon of the first day.
This new way of filing is a first step towards revolutionising the electronic handling of the patent grant process over the coming years. Although the new system is still being developed and tested, the User Day will give you a first glimpse of the new generation of EPO online services.
Of course the programme also offers workshops and seminars on all our existing online services. You will find detailed descriptions of the workshops in the programme.
We look forward to seeing you in Stockholm!
