"Skillroad - meet skills programme" with Jeremy Philpott

Under the motto "Meet skills and the people behind them", the ISK Parents' Association "Skillroad" is organising a series of exceptional key note speakers for the Upper School students in the school year 2022/23.

On 22 November

Jeremy Philpott from the European Patent Organization (EPA)

gave an impressive online presentation.

Jeremy Philpott coordinates many of the EPO’s communication campaigns including the annual Patent Index, numerous economic studies, as well as stakeholder communications for the Unitary Patent and the introduction of videoconferencing for oral proceedings. He also led the EPO’s flagship communications project, the European Inventor Award, from 2015 to 2020.

He shared his wealth of experience with the young people and gave them first-hand information about exciting projects and activities in his work. Afterwards, the students took the opportunity to ask questions.
