Study and mentorship visits

In line with international and European best practices and in support of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the African Union’s Agenda 2063, AfrIPI aims to create, protect, utilise, administer and enforce intellectual property rights across Africa.

To achieve this, AfrIPI will send seven Egyptian judges to the EUIPO for a study visit from 6 to 13 July 2022. The visit is intended to provide members of the Egyptian Council of State with a better understanding of the EUIPO’s working processes and to amend the draft Egyptian trade mark and design rules. This will be accomplished through meetings with specific departments, as well as unique workshops to enhance and clarify understanding of the guidelines’ methodology.

This study visit is part of the AfrIPI Annual Work Plan 2022, and will comprise three main activities:

  • participating in the IP Case Law Conference, hosted by the EUIPO’s Boards of Appeal;
  • two day study visit with the EUIPO’s main departments;
  • one day social event focusing on Geographical Indications.
