NEWS FROM THE PATENT OFFICE

Two items of interest from the Patent Office:

* One for all you job-hunting scientists out there – the Patent Office is looking for 6 new examiners for its 2005 intake. Those with electrical engineering, electronics, computer technology and telecommunications backgrounds are particularly welcome but biotechnologists are out of luck. One of the requirements of the job is to be flexible – the IPKat’s mind boggles…

* The Patent Office is conducting a review of its London operations. The current set-up was put into place before the internet was a part of everyday life and during a temporary boom in demand for court facilities and hearing rooms. However, the Office has provided reassurance that it intends to have a continued London presence. Comments and views are welcome addressed to London.review@patent.gov.uk. The IPKat says “Get writing”.
