registration processOn Saturday 7 September, the EUIPO will hold an open day at its premises.

This is the first time the Office has organised such an initiative, which coincides with the 25th anniversary of its foundation.

The open day will run from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. There will be free admission and activities for everyone, including children of all ages. Visitors will be able to see the registration process of intellectual property rights for themselves, discover some of the major projects and activities the Office is working on, and learn more about the European Union.

For those coming from Alicante, the EUIPO has arranged free transport on hybrid buses on 7 September, running from 9.40 a.m. onwards between Plaza de los Luceros in Alicante and the Agua Amarga site. For security reasons, you may be asked to show some ID on entering.

The EUIPO forms part of the network of EU agencies. Agencies are specialist bodies set up under EU law to perform a variety of tasks, and located across the European Union. The EUIPO has been based in Alicante since its foundation, and according to a study carried out by the city’s Chamber of Commerce, has had an economic impact of over EUR 6 000 million in the region and the wider province since 1996.
