HGF UPC events in Germany and Austria 2022

March 2022

Event date: 10th May 2022

HGF is holding a webinar and an in-person event covering the UPC in Germany and Austria this Spring.

The provisional phase of the Unified Patent Court (UPC) is now underway and it is likely to come into force in the second half of 2022 or early 2023. In our seminars on the UPC and the European patent with unitary effect or unitary patent (UP), we will explain how you can obtain unitary protection for a large part of the EU member states with a single application to the European Patent Office. We will discuss the impact of the UPC on your existing European patent portfolios and the possibility of a unitary procedure to enforce European patents valid and in force in the participating EU Member States.


HGF führt in diesem Frühjahr eine Reihe von Veranstaltungen über die UPC in Deutschland durch.

Die vorläufige Phase des Einheitlichen Patentgerichts (UPC) ist nun angelaufen und es wird wahrscheinlich in der zweiten Hälfte des Jahres 2022 oder Anfang 2023 in Kraft treten. In unserem Seminar über das UPC und das europäische Patent mit einheitlicher Wirkung oder Einheitspatent (UP) erläutern wir, wie Sie mit einem einzigen Antrag beim Europäischen Patentamt einheitlichen Schutz für einen Großteil der EU-Mitgliedstaaten erlangen können. Wir erörtern die Auswirkungen des UPC auf Ihre bestehenden europäischen Patentportfolios und die Möglichkeit eines einheitlichen Verfahrens, das die Durchsetzung von in den teilnehmenden EU-Mitgliedstaaten gültigen und in Kraft befindlichen europäischen Patenten ermöglicht.

Die deutschsprachigen Events finden wie folgt statt:
