Patent Knowledge Week 2022 of the EPO

Patent Knowledge Week takes place again this year in a fully digital format. We are very excited to be part of #PKWeek 2022 this year!

The event aims to help all innovation professionals base their decisions on sound patent knowledge. On behalf of the European Commission, Claire Fritz, a member of both teams, will have the opportunity on the second day of the event, 5 October, to present our two initiatives to support innovation for SMEs in the EU: the EC IP SME Heldpesks and the Horizon IP Scan.

The programme is designed in a modular way, with no sessions running in parallel. It is possible to attend the whole event, or select the topics, formats or levels.

This year’s key topics include:

  • Unitary Patent
  • Patents and sustainable development
  • Patents against pandemics: IP knowledge in the post-COVID world
