Access to the EPO building

For those attending the pre-conference workshop at the EPO Vienna on Wednesday afternoon: The EPO tries to make all its buildings and events as accessible as possible to people with disabilities. Please inform us in advance and we will suggest how to proceed.

Please make sure that you carry a picture ID with you to identify yourself at the EPO entrance. As the security measures at the EPO premises have been increased for the security of visitors and staff, visitors and their bags and luggage will be scanned by security which can lead to delays and tailbacks. You are therefore kindly advised to arrange your arrival to allow for some extra time.
