The Training & Education Committee promotes training and education of FICPI members, potential members and others interested in IP protection.
FICPI’s Training & Education Committee (TEC) has primary responsibility for devising the content for the working sessions at FICPI’s educational meetings such as its Open Forums and symposia.
The TEC commission also supervises the FICPI Academy of Education which runs the SEAD™ and EuroSEAD™ Courses on patent drafting in Southeast Asia and Europe.
Under FICPI’s strategic plan, the TEC Commission is also looking at measures for providing training and education to potential members in countries and regions where the profession is less well developed.
The president of TEC is elected by the EXCO, and its members are chosen by its president after consultation with the Bureau.
The TEC Commission is involved in developing the content for FICPI’s educational meetings, such as the Open Forums, held every two years out of three in Europe, and other symposia around the world.
It also supervises the work of the FICPI Academy of Education, a body of voluntary tutors and course coordinators who each year run patent drafting courses in Europe and Southeast Asia.
