Important information: As the conference venue Union Grand Hotel has limited room capacity, we have also reserved rooms at the Hotel Lev. The allocation of rooms will be done on a first come, first served basis. Please book early!
Please be aware that hotel room capacity in Ljubljana is limited. Therefore please observe the registration deadline for the conference and hotel accommodation - 9 March 2018!
For PATLIB2018, the EPO will cover the accommodation costs for the staff of PATLIB centres attending the conference, on the following basis:
Maximum number of nights: 3
Earliest permissible arrival date: 2 May 2018
Latest permissible departure date: 5 May 2018
The EPO will pay the hotel direct. As a consequence, no daily subsistence allowance will be available to travellers who normally receive a daily subsistence allowance as part of the EPO's co-operation roadmap.
The above conditions only apply to PATLIB staff staying at the Grand Hotel Union and Hotel Lev, and are limited to one member of staff per PATLIB centre, plus two members of staff per national patent office.
Participants to whom the above conditions do not apply may book rooms at the Grand Hotel Union at a rate of EUR 126 (single) or at Hotel Lev at EUR 105 (single) per night. These bookings should also be made via the EPO. PATLIB/NPO staff booking a double room will receive an invoice for EUR 20 per night.
Any conference delegates who have additional private stays outside the dates covered by these conditions must settle the costs incurred direct with the hotel.
Travel expenses (flight or train tickets) will be supported under the rules of the co-operation roadmap and according to the eligibility status of the respective country.
Deadline for booking your hotel room: 9 March 2018.
Please note that hotel booking has to be done via the conference registration page.
