Associate Professor of IP & Privacy Law at the University of Stirling
This is a very significant partnership which recognises the talented students produced by the University of Stirling and our commitment to nurturing and promoting their skills.
Over the 12-month programme, trainees are embedded in professional teams and work with dedicated mentors. They receive patent examination training, follow a tailored development programme, and learn the German or Spanish language.
To apply for the Programme, candidates do not have to have previously studied intellectual property law, with those studying subjects including economics, communications, HR, law and science – at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels – encouraged to apply.
Guido Noto La Diega, Associate Professor of IP & Privacy Law at the University of Stirling, said: “This is a very significant partnership which recognises the talented students produced by the University of Stirling and our commitment to nurturing and promoting their skills.
“The traineeship bridges the gap between academia and the intellectual property labour market and successful candidates will be propelled in to an ever expanding and relevant sector, where they will have the opportunity to learn a host of new skills as well as secure vital international work experience.”
The Programme’s existing partners include the University of Cambridge (Centre for Intellectual Property and Information Law), Pantheon-Sorbonne University, and the University of Valencia.
Applications for Stirling students will open in January 2022, with candidates shortlisted by the University before being put forward to the Pan-European Seal Programme panel, who will select the successful trainees.
