EUIPO and EAPO strengthen cooperation
On 14 March, a delegation from the Eurasian Patent Organization (EAPO), visited the EUIPO’s premises and met the Executive Director, Christian Archambeau.
The EUIPO and EAPO signed a Memorandum of Understanding to strengthen cooperation between the two offices.
EAPO is an intergovernmental organisation in which eight member states participate (Turkmenistan, the Republic of Belarus, the Republic of Tajikistan, Russia, the Azerbaijan Republic, the Republic of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, and Armenia). The collaboration with the EUIPO will focus on training programmes and the exchange of secondment staff, including study visits and the exchange of knowledge related to legal and regulatory practices.
The offices will also share information on tools and will work more closely regarding the publication of industrial design data for the benefit of users.
