Initiated by the ELTE Center of Innovation, in 2020 ELTE has joined as strategic partner university in the Pan-European Seal (PES) 1-year, paid internship program of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) and the European Patent Office (EPO). Throughout the program, numerous young Europeans are enabled to gain valuable on-the-job experience and develop their skills within the multicultural environment of Europe’s most prestigious and largest intergovernmental organisations.
In the previous years 9 ELTE graduates from 5 different faculties of ELTE started their traineeship at EUIPO and EPO within the framework of the program.
The 2023/2024 edition of PES program has been launched, the application is open until 19 February 2023. Detailed instructions can be reached here.
