• About the event

    Opposition Matters follows in the footsteps of its sister events, Search Matters and Examination Matters, which have become key events for patent searchers and attorneys. It is designed to give participants direct access to EPO examiners and European patent attorneys with years of opposition experience. The first edition of this new event took place on April 22-23 and focused on the hot topic of 2021: the introduction of inter partes oral proceedings by videoconference
