Study trip to Munich

Last week the Nordic Patent Service team went on a study trip to visit the EPO in Munich.

An EPO examiner gave us an interesting guided tour in the EPO premises. The next day we attended an oral proceeding at the Board of Appeal as public in an appeal with three opponents to allow all staff members to get acquainted with oral proceedings.

But we also got the chance to study German (Bavarian) culture, including Biergarten and Apfelstrudel.
