NOVA University Lisbon is part of the Pan-European Seal Network and has recently extended the Pan-European Seal Traineeship Programme, offered jointly by Europe's two largest Intellectual Property (IP) organizations - the European Patent Office (EPO) and the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
This traineeship program provides young graduates or high-performance university students, in their final year of studies, with access to one-year paid traineeships at EPO (Munich, Germany) or at EUIPO (Alicante, Spain), contributing to their insertion in the competitive world of IP through an enriching multicultural professional experience, advanced training and teamwork.
Candidates can only be accepted if nominated by their university. Therefore, you should start by filing this form until March 2nd, 2021.
The NOVA Impact office, in articulation with NOVA’s Organic Units, will select the candidates that will integrate the shortlist to send to EPO and EUIPO. These candidates will be directly contacted by this office to submit their online application and complete the e-courses required by the institution to which they apply for. Learn more about these e-courses at EPO and EUIPO websites.
Note: Students from the NOVA School of Law must contact directly the responsible services of this School (Careers and Institutional Relations) informing about their intention to apply to this Programme.
Due to the limited number of vacancies in the entire Programme, candidates appointed by NOVA must commit to undertaking the traineeship if they are subsequently selected by EPO or EUIPO.
EPO: 2000€/ month.
