The European Patent Office (EPO) has updated two modules in its e-learning centre on “patentability of computer-implemented inventions” and “biotechnological inventions”.

The new modules have been restructured according to the recent developments in both areas and with respect to the current EPO practices.

With this latest update, the module on “patentability of computer-implemented inventions” covers patentable and non-patentable subject-matter and examination of such inventions together with case law examples.

The module on “biotechnological inventions” focuses on specific patentability criteria of biotechnological inventions.
