European Patent Office


As Chef vom Dienst, Jeremy coordinates the various external communication activities of the European Patent Office via printed publications, the website and media relations.

Jeremy graduated from Cardiff University with a PhD in analytical chemistry, and then became a patent examiner at the UK Patent Office. In 2000 he joined the Marketing Department of the UK Patent Office, explaining intellectual property to business people, students and journalists, before joining the European Patent Office in 2005 to lead the Innovation Support Unit of the European Patent Academy.

For much of the last five years Jeremy has led ip4inno (www.ip4inno.eu) - an IP strategy "train the trainers" project for business advisors and technology transfer professionals. The project includes over sixty hours of teaching material covering IP business planning, open innovation, IP licensing, valuation, financing and enforcement, as well as the strategic use of patent information. These materials also come in a range of formats, from regular PowerPoint files with extensive teaching notes, to cases studies and practical workshops exercises, to e-learning materials accessible on demand from the EPO website and "Virtual Classroom Lessons" - web-based tutorials where students can interact with the trainer live regardless of their location. Such materials have been designed to suit students who wish to learn at their own pace and SMEs who cannot spare the time to attend regular classroom workshops.
