The South Centre is pleased to announce that we are organizing a Workshop on Patent Examination Practices Relating to Biologics, on 21 September 2022 in Geneva, Switzerland.
The Workshop will bring together a selected group of officials from patent offices in developing countries that specialize in the biotechnology sector or lead training within the patent office in this area. The purpose of the workshop is to exchange practices among patent offices and advance recommendations for development of guidelines relating to the examination of patent applications on biologics, in the light of typical claims made in relation to products and manufacturing processes.
The main conclusions of the discussion will be shared with heads of national patent offices and policymakers from relevant ministries.
