Strengthening the Egyptian Patent Office

The overall objective of this European Union funded programme is to contribute to the improvement of the Egyptian economy and its scientific research by improving the country's patent system. 

During the two years that this FIIAPP-managed twinning programme is to last, international standards will be applied to improve the institutional, technical and awareness capabilities of the Egyptian Patent Office (EGYPO). 

The ultimate goal is to increase patent applications by Egyptian inventors, particularly within the scientific community. The programme will be led by specialists from the Spanish Patents and Trademarks Office (OEPM) with the participation of its Danish and German counterparts.
