Pan-European Seal Programme

This scheme gives young university graduates a unique first-hand experience of the European Union in general and the Office in particular. It is also an opportunity to put into practice the knowledge acquired during their studies, in particular in their specific areas of competence. In addition, it helps them understand the objectives and procedures relating to the European Union trade mark and Community design system, as well as to IP infringement and enforcement matters.

It is open to young graduates from EU Member States and from non EU countries (limited numbers):

  • Who have completed successfully at least the first cycle of a higher education course certified by an official document from the University before the selection procedure starts;
  • with a working knowledge of one of Office's five working languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish), equivalent to level B1 in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages;
  • and preferably a good knowledge of another official EU language.
 

Applying for a traineeship

Each University having signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with EUIPO presents the latter with a short-list of at least five best aspiring graduates of the same University on that academic year, as potential candidates for traineeships.

Once candidates are informed by their University that they are short-listed, they will have to apply for the corresponding traineeship position through the e-recruitment tool published on the EUIPO official website within the open application period.
