    European Cooperation working groups meet at EUIPO

    From 4-7 March 2019, the EUIPO hosts the 6th European Cooperation Projects (ECP) working group meetings, with the participation of 160 experts from EU IP offices, user associations, the European Patent Office (EPO) and EUIPO.

    The working groups will review the progress made on 10 different European Cooperation Projects, including the two newly launched working groups European Network of Authenticities (under ECP5 Supporting the Network) and CP12: Evidence in Appeal Proceedings (under ECP4 Shared Services and Practices).

    Participation and engagement in the working groups has increased over the past years. Working group members are playing a key role in developing the technical direction and business justification for each project.

    The next ECP working groups will take place from 30 September to 4 October 2019.
