Munich/Brussels: The European Parliament will host the first European Patent Office (EPO) Information Day on the 30th March 2005. The EPO Information Day will include a presentation to the Industry, Research and Energy Committee (ITRE) by EPO President Alain Pompidou and workshops on EPO products and services.
Mr. Alain Pompidou will highlight the dynamic growth of the European patent system and its role for the European economy. The European Patent Office plays a central role in managing the flow from technological knowledge to innovation and from innovation to the market place. This year the EPO expects a new record number of nearly 180,000 patent applications from all fields of technology.
Supporting European enterprises and, consequently, the innovation process in the European Union, the EPO contributes to the realization of the Lisbon strategy, establishing the goal for the European Union to become knowledge-based and the most competitive economy in the world by 2010.
