According to the Office, “stakeholder input will play a key role in helping us to formulate our strategic priorities for the next few years. The Strategic Plan will steer all our activities over the period 2019 to 2023 in different areas, be translated into concrete actions and projects and be subject to regular monitoring of progress and achievements”.

The public consultation, running until 15 March 2019, invites input on the following three topics:

  1. Evolution of the patent system and future challenges
  2. Delivering high-quality products and services
  3. Social responsibility and transparency
