New Project: Cooperation with the European Union Intellectual Property Office and the EUIPO Academy
INSOL Europe has launched a new project of cooperation with the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the EUIPO Academy. 

This will include informing INSOL Europe members about the PES Talent Bank, connecting, and offering, further traineeship and job opportunities to former Pan-European Seal trainees, cooperation to establish a high-level network between the two IP Offices, INSOL Europe members, former PES trainees, and proposing a joint research project. 

Over the last month the project team has been working hard to get the project off the ground. The project is led by INSOL Europe President, Barry Cahir, Nicoleta Mirela Năstasie and Emmanuelle Inacio, along with INSOL Europe’s Insolvency Tech & Digital Assets Wing co-chairs - José Carles, Dávid Oršula, Laurent Le Pajolec. 

The success of the project depends on the involvement of stakeholders, including practitioners, academics, and judiciary, in raising awareness and using best practises in intellectual property law litigation. Engaging in ongoing dissemination of knowledge and information on how to improve cross-border restructuring mechanisms when trademark assets are involved, through enhanced judicial and practitioner networks provided by INSOL Europe and EUIPO events and mechanisms, can develop inter-professional cooperation.

More details will be published on our website and in Eurofenix as the project develops.
