Asian patent information: Material of East meets West 2018 / Save the date for 2019

Again, more than 100 patent information professionals from 25 countries attended the EPO's "East meets West" forum on 19/20 April 2018 in Vienna, Austria. Throughout the two-day event, participants had the opportunity to join interactive discussion rounds and engage in one-on-one talks with specialists from various regions. This continued dialogue will help to overcome barriers in mutual understanding and contribute to a better access to global patent information.

All conference material and a photo gallery have been uploaded onto the forum website. An article on this year's event has now been published in the latest issue (2/2018) of the EPO's Patent Information News.

The next East meets West forum will take place in Vienna on 11/12 April 2019. Further details will soon be released on the EPO website. If you would like to stay informed about this event, please contact and we will put you on our mailing list.
