Battistelli update

A bit of a quicky this one.


As the IPKat mentioned in an earlier post, Benoît Battistelli (right), the new President of the European Patent Office, will be giving a public lecture at UCL on the 8th of November - his first in the UK since stepping into his new role. Full details, including a link to the tickets (which are disappearing fast) are below.

The title of his talk will be: How can Europe be a key player at a global level in the patent field? What is the role of the EPO?

The event includes a panel discussion with the speaker and:
  • John Alty, Chief Executive, IPO
  • Alasdair Poore, President, CIPA (tbc)

The chair will be taken by The Rt Hon Lord Justice Jacob

As for timing: it's 17:30 registration for an 18:00 start, with a drinks reception to follow the event.

The remaining few tickets can be snapped up here:
