Recommencing IFIA EPO Relationship
During the meeting held between the authorities of IFIA and European Patent Organization on Tuesday, October 27, 2015 in EPO headquarters, both parties laid great stress on the rejuvenation of past collaboration so as to provide the inventors more efficient opportunities.
The European Patent Organisation is an intergovernmental organisation that was set up on 7 October 1977 on the basis of the European Patent Convention (EPC) signed in Munich in 1973. It has two bodies, the European Patent Office and the Administrative Council, which supervises the Office’s activities.
During the course of the meeting, Mr. Rastegar, IFIA President elaborated on his proposal for the representation of EPO advantages to the inventors and Ms. Margot Fröhlinger, EPO Principal Director expressed EPO’s willingness to participate in IFIA events and organize training workshops. Furthermore, both parties hotly discussed the implementation of other bilateral projects.
According to the agreement negotiated between the parties, IFIA will cooperate with this organization for the publication of Inventor’s handbook. Meanwhile, the best commercialized invention by IFIA members will be nominated for EPO big prize.
