Tutor's report EQE 2016 available in epi Information 4/2016


The Tutors' report on the EQE 2016 papers (pdf), by L. Ferreira (PT), A. Hards (DE), M. Mackett (BE), H. Marsman (NL), S. van Rijnswou (NL), and R. van Woudenberg (NL, editor), has been published in epi Information 4/2016. 


Each year in October, the European Patent Academy and the epi arrange a meeting between EQE tutors and the Examination Committees. The goals are to discuss last year's papers, to improve future EQE's by openly exchanging ideas and to help tutors prepare candidates for next year's exam.

The Examination Board has kindly given the tutors permission to publish their own report of the important points so that candidates can more easily find this information. In addition, the comments can greatly assist when reading and interpreting the official EQE Compendium.

This year's meeting was held in Munich on October 21. The participant list showed 84 registered tutors, 20 registered Committee and Board members, and 8 further registered EPO and epi members (Academy, EQE secretariat, epi).

This Tutors' Report appears each year in the end of year edition of epi Information. It contains the following sections:
1. Overview of the passing rates in 20162. General remarks
