Kilburn & Strode’s Chemistry team invites you to discuss the patentability of chemical inventions before the European Patent Office:
Added matter at the EPO: the chemistry perspective
About the event
“Added matter”. Two words that sound the death knell for many patents and applications at the EPO, but that are rarely heard elsewhere in the world. On its face, the statute in different countries appears to have the same spirit, so why is added matter such a case-killer in Europe?
Join us on 15 June 2021 for an interactive live webinar as we cover the key aspects of the European approach, illustrated with our own experiences from the frontline before the EPO Examiners and Boards of Appeal.
We will also provide you with some top tips for dealing with this tricky issue when drafting, and how to address it in both pre- and post-grant proceedings.
We hope you will be able to join us for this event.
