EPO To Help Russia Harmonize Patent Legislation with EU

Nov 24 2009 - 10:43

On November 5, 2009, the European Patent Office (EPO) signed a contract with the European Commission to implement a EUR 500,000 (USD 748,000) project aimed at making the Russian patent legislation more uniform with EU legislation.

The project’s objective is to simplify Russia’s patent application, registration, and processing procedure, facilitate the teaching of Intellectual Property in Russia, and help develop patent guidelines that will be used by patent examiners at the Russian PTO (Rospatent).

This project will run over the next 12 months.
