CEPIUG and its mission

The ‘Confederacy of European Patent Information User Groups’ (CEPIUG) was founded in 2008.
Its aim is to be a platform for cooperation for the Patent Information User Groups in Europe. Focus of the Confederacy is to subjects that are relevant to all member User Groups. Having these issues resolved by the individual member user groups would be a waste of valuable resources.

For matters specific to your country, please address them to your local Patent Information User Group directly. For a list of (national) user groups see the list of user groups page.

Its aim is not to be a pressure group in the direction of information providers or patenting authorities. Also for these matters, please address them to your (national) user group.
