FICCI-EPO Workshop on “Protecting Pharma & Biotech Inventions at EPO” on 30th October 2014 at Taj Lands End, Mumbai

As you would be aware, pharmaceutical and biotechnology inventions are highly complex in nature and require years of long painstaking research and considerable investment to create innovative and marketable products. It is, therefore, of pivotal importance to effectively protect the intellectual property (IP) thus created. With this aim, FICCI in association with the European Patent Office (EPO) and European Business & Technology Centre (EBTC) is organizing a one day Workshop on European Patent System and EPO Examination Practice in the Field of Pharmaceuticals and Biotechnology on 30th October 2014 at Taj Lands End, Mumbai.


The workshop is aimed at developing understanding among IP stakeholders in India of the procedural and patentability aspects of the grant and opposition procedure at the European Patent Office for applications and patents relating to pharmaceuticals and biotechnology. Through the workshop, the IP system users will be able to understand EPO requirements in ascertaining the inventive steps for pharmaceutical substances whether it is a new chemical entity or formulations or new forms of known substances, Markush claims etc.

Those who wish to attend this workshop, shall inform via mail to Ms. Kartika Suhag at Vedika Sidhu at, phone: +91-11-23487477.
