IP@Lunch: Revised Swiss Patents Act – added value?
Date: 13 July 2022
Time: 11.30am – 2pm
Location: ZHAW, St.-Georgen-Platz 2, 8401 Winterthur, Building SW, Room 401 or online (LINK)
The revision of the Swiss Patent Act is intended in particular to increase the value of the Swiss patent. For the fully examined patent, the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) will in future examine all legal requirements, including novelty and inventive step. This should create a national alternative to the European patent, which is also fully examined.
Is this revision still appropriate today, and will it bring the necessary boost in patent applications in Switzerland? Experts from the ZHAW, the Swiss Federal Institute of Intellectual Property (IPI) and from intellectual property practice take a closer look and discuss future opportunities and risks.
Find out more in the programme. The event will be held in German.
