Programmes and application

Information on how to apply to our training programs is found below.

PRV focuses on training at international level in intellectual property – copyright, patent, trademark and design protection. This international cooperation includes the transfer of knowledge and experience between the participating countries. PRV offers international training programmes, provides access to international experts and hosts study visits from abroad.

Further, PRV runs international projects and coordinates development activities with the European Patent Organisation (EPO) and the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). These activities are funded by sources outside of PRV, such as The Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), WIPO, EPO and the European Union (EU)

International Training Programmes

Information in relation to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic:

PRV wants to help tackle the spread of the virus. Therefore, we have chosen to enforce a few restrictions. One restriction is that PRV, for the time being do not arrange or participate in physical international meetings.

As a consequence, we are preparing to organize all activities related to the International Training Programmes during 2020 in a virtual setting. When the situation of the pandemic is improved and international meetings seems feasible we will reconsider this.
