01    Publication of the study on the potential for optimising the Swiss national patent system
Even though the Swiss patent system has stood the test of time over the years, it is worthwhile reviewing from time to time to ensure that it still meets the requirements of a rapidly changing framework. Two economic consulting companies therefore addressed this issue under the mandate of the IPI, and have made recommendations accordingly. Further information.

02    Negotiators approve revision of the Lisbon Agreement for the Protection of Appellations of Origin and their International Registration
Signing the final Act at an official ceremony on 21 May 2015, delegates concluded the diplomatic conference and 10 days of intense negotiations to revise the Lisbon Agreement which provides for the protection and international registration of appellations of origin. For more information.

03    New internet presence - your opinion counts
The Institute of Intellectual Property is planning to substantially revise the www.ipi.ch and www.ip-search.ch websites. The aim is to present our information and services tailored to customers’ needs in a more up-to-date way. For more information.
