EUIPO Trade Mark and Design Education Programme

MARQUES Education Team members Shane Smyth, Sandra Muller, Charlotte Duly and José Amorim took part in the closing ceremony of the first edition of the EUIPO Trade Mark and Design Education Programme (ETMD EP) in Alicante on 11 June (pictured right).

Speaking at the Ceremony, Shane said: “We are absolutely delighted to be involved in this education initiative. It was an honour to work with colleagues across such a broad stage from EUIPO, Academia and Sister Organisations. We are conscious that this is a pilot project but the piloting has been of such a high standard and has taken the course participants on such a flight of excellence that Marques hope that the pilot will stay with us for the future.

ETMD EP second edition

As previously reported on the Class 46 blog, the second edition of the Programme is now open for registration until 30 June 2019. It will start on 9 September 2019 to June 2020, with examination from 8 to 10 June 2020. There will be two three-day on-site workshops in October and March, as well as online testing.

The programme comprises 150 hours of courses involving e-learning, webinars and two three-day face-to-face sessions at the EUIPO in Alicante, Spain. It will be conducted in English.

The Programme’s main goals are to enhance IP professionals’ knowledge of EU trade mark and design law and EUIPO practice and tools, and to improve operational effectiveness by increasing the quality of applications and processes and by generating and sharing knowledge.

To be eligible for the Programme, applicants must be either (a) a legal practitioner qualified in an EEA Member State and having their place of business within the EEA or (b) a professional representative admitted and entered on the lists maintained by the EUIPO.

Registration is on a first-come first-served basis and limited to the first 100 participants. Tuition fees are €1,500. For more information, see the dedicated page on EUIPO’s website.
