According to European Patent Office (EPO), the heads of the world's five largest intellectual property offices (IP5) met virtually today for their 15th annual meeting on June 9th, 2022. The focus of this year's meeting, hosted by the EPO, was to introduce sustainability in the IP5 agendas and enhance the patent system to better support innovators globally.

EPO President Antonio Campinos chaired the meeting, which was attended by JPO Commissioner Mori Kiyoshi, KIPO Commissioner Lee Insil, CNIPA Commissioner Shen Changyu, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property, and USPTO Director Kathi Vidal, and WIPO Deputy Director General Lisa Jorgenson.

Topics discussed included the results of cooperation during the past year. Among the highlights was the implementation of a global alerting system by the EPO, covering patent prosecution changes in all five offices. The preparations made for implementing the IP5 NET/AI Roadmap were also reviewed. The aim of this Roadmap is to optimize internal processes at the IP5 through the use of new emerging technologies and artificial intelligence, as well as enhance legal certainty and transparency in applicable patent practices. Among other issues discussed, a preliminary evaluation of the pilot project on IP5 PCT Collaborative Search & Examination was presented, along with details of the extension of the evaluation phase. In terms of outcomes, the IP5 offices agreed to revisit the IP5 vision to accommodate sustainability and will consider the establishment of an IP5 sustainability task force, to coordinate actions on this important agenda.

The IP5 meeting was preceded by an IP5 meeting with industry representatives from the respective regions on June, 8th. In 2022, the participants celebrated the 10th anniversary of the beginning of the dialogue at this level and agreed to strengthen the partnership for a sustainable future.

The next IP5 heads of office meeting will be hosted by the USPTO in 2023.

The State Enterprise "Ukrainian Intellectual Property Institute" (Ukrpatent) received another letter of support from the State Intellectual Property Office of the Republic of Croatia. To the words of solidarity with the people of Ukraine, the Croatian Office added a unique and rare postage stamp issued by the Croatian Post as one of the symbols of friendship between Croatia and Ukraine and mutual support of comprehensive efforts to achieve peace in Ukraine, return of the displaced and refugees, normalize life in our country.

The stamp with a circulation of 30,000 copies, created by designer Alenka Lalić from Zagreb and photographer Darko Kešnjer from Vukovar, features an image of a rapeseed field and a blue sky as a symbol of the Ukrainian flag. The booklet to the stamp states that Ukraine and Croatia were among the first to recognize each other's independence in 1991; February 18, 2022 marked the 30th anniversary of the beginning of diplomatic relations between friendly countries. On February 24, 2022, the Republic of Croatia strongly condemned the beginning of unprovoked aggression against Ukraine, and on February 25, 2022, the Croatian Parliament adopted the relevant Declaration on Ukraine.

Dear Director General Kudin,

Thank you for your letter of 15 April 2022. On behalf of IP Australia and its staff, I express my heartfelt support for the Ukrainian people as you face this overwhelming adversity. As a show of IP Australia's strong and continued support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity, my intervention at the WIPO Conversation on Frontier Technologiesmlast month condemned Russia's unprovoked and unjust invasion of your country.

I truly respect the conviction, resilience, and spirit you have shown in continuing your role and maintaining the intellectual property system in Ukraine throughout this difficult time. I hope that despite these challenges, we can strengthen cooperation between our offices and work together to improve the global intellectual property system.

I hope we can meet in the future, perhaps in person, when circumstances improve.

Yours sincerely,
Michael Schwager
Director General
IP Australia

Slava Ukraini!


 

During the meeting between the President of the EPO António Campinos and the Director General of the State Enterprise "Ukrainian Institute of Intellectual Property" (Ukrpatent) Andrew Kudin, the directions of the EPO’s assistance to Ukrpatent were discussed in detail. Given the situation faced by Ukraine, the European Office offered the Ukrainian partner an expanded package of support and cooperation measures. The relevant Declaration of Intent was signed by the Heads of the offices.
 
The main area of ​​cooperation is focused on supporting Ukrpatent’s specialists and the continuous operation of the enterprise. The EPO will develop a special internship program and, with the support of the European Patent Academy, provide access to the full training catalog. In addition, among the issues discussed are the support and strengthening of the existing IT infrastructure and the development of new processes. This will extend the existing measures of support by EPO such as the suspension of invoices for EPOQUE Net. Furthermore, support for the national innovation ecosystem is an important issue. It was emphasized that supporting Ukrainian innovators and creating national intellectual property rights are invaluable initiatives that need to be protected and developed. The development of more specific measures in this area is entrusted to the joint EPO-Ukrpatent working group.
 
The EPO notes that despite the extremely difficult conditions, Ukrpatent and its staff continue to work both remotely and from the headquarters. Addressing the EPO staff, the Director General Andrew Kudin thanked Ukrpatent staff for their resilience and determination as they continue to provide services to stakeholders and customers.
