EUIPO meets with WIPO and EPO
The EUIPO hosted online bilateral meetings with the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO) and the European Patent Office (EPO) on 10 and 12 June 2020.
The meetings aimed at providing both organisations with an outline of the activities in the portfolio of the European Cooperation Projects (ECP1-8) under the new Strategic Plan of the Office, SP2025.
The EUIPO also presented the next steps to be taken during the second half of 2020 and 2021, and invited WIPO and EPO representatives to show their interest in participating in the upcoming ECP working groups.
The EUIPO is committed to do its utmost to continue maintaining direct channels of communications and discussions with WIPO and EPO, not only to exchange views and facilitate the correct understanding of the ECPs, but also to explore synergies, in particular in terms of tools and initiatives, such as SME activities.
