After the success of its inaugural edition in 2018/2019 with more than 50 participants from 23 countries , the EUIPO is launching the second edition of  its Trade Mark and Design Education Programme.  I am wondering whether it would be possible to announce the program in the IP Kat Blog.

The ETMD EP is a training programme that has been specially designed for intellectual property (IP) practitioners. The ETMD EP will focus on the interaction between the EUIPO and IP practitioners in trade mark and design registration and prosecution. The course will be delivered by EUIPO staff, leading IP professionals and academics. This course will be delivered in English and will run from September 2019 to June 2020. There will be 150 hours of classes combining e-learning with two 3 day face-to-face sessions at the EUIPO. There will also be an examination at the end of the ETMD EP and successful candidates will be awarded an EUIPO certificate. Please note that this certificate in no way entitles its holder to obtain the status of a professional representative through the exception provided for in Article 120(4)(a) EUTMR. Nor will it be a prerequisite for representing parties before the EUIPO or undertaking any other activity related to the Office. Registration is limited to 100 persons and will be open from 15 May to 30 June 2019, on a first come, first served basis. For more information about the programme of studies, the calendar and tuition fees, please visit the ETMD EP website here.

No comments:

All comments must be moderated by a member of the IPKat team before they appear on the blog. Comments will not be allowed if the contravene the IPKat policy that readers' comments should not be obscene or defamatory; they should not consist of ad hominem attacks on members of the blog team or other comment-posters and they should make a constructive contribution to the discussion of the post on which they purport to comment.

It is also the IPKat policy that comments should not be made completely anonymously, and users should use a consistent name or pseudonym (which should not itself be defamatory or obscene, or that of another real person), either in the "identity" field, or at the beginning of the comment. Current practice is to, however, allow a limited number of comments that contravene this policy, provided that the comment has a high degree of relevance and the comment chain does not become too difficult to follow.
