Examination Matters has become the meeting place for patent attorneys dealing with the EPO in the patent granting procedure. Examiners and practitioners provide insight into the mind of the examiner and the day-to-day work performed. Workshops offer the opportunity to conduct detailed discussions with your peers on relevant aspects of examination, share day-to-day experiences and get immediate answers to your practical questions from EPO examiners, lawyers and epi experts.
This year's event will focus on several procedural and substantive aspects of examination proceedings, such as late filings, auxiliary requests, hindsight when assessing inventive step, correction of errors and many others.
This high-level event is once again organised in close co-operation with the epi.
This event is intended to patent attorneys who are active in the prosecution of European patent applications before the EPO.
