Dear IP-Health readers,

For those of you who want a little non-covid-19 reading, a blog on the European Patent Office validation agreements with third countries which make it possible to validate European patents in these countries. 

So far, the EPO has signed validation agreements with Morocco, Republic of Moldova, Tunisia, Cambodia (excludes pharmaceutical product patents) and Georgia (2018, not yet entered into force). The EPO is in talks with others.
