EQE Candidate Support Project (CSP)

The CSP is a European Patent Office (EPO) "Co-operation Roadmap" project. The goal is to support EQE candidates from those member states having five or fewer EQE-qualified Professional Representatives (PRs) in their preparations for the European Qualifying Examination (EQE). The project provides registered EQE candidates not only with access to existing EQE training seminars and teaching materials, but also dedicated coaching, and some financial support. For participation in the project starting in 2015, in preparation for the EQE Pre-examination 2016, applications should reach the respective national patent office by Friday 29 May 2015.


The Institute of Professional Representatives before the European Patent Office („epi“) came into existence pursuant to the European Patent Convention (EPC).
