We are delighted to congratulate Ekaterina Popova on her completion of the European Union Trademark and design Educational Programme, held by the EUIPO. This is a practical programme delivered by EUIPO staff and leading professionals and academics in the field, providing IP practitioners with a more in-depth understanding of the practices and procedures of the EUIPO. "In addition to gaining a lot of very useful institutional knowledge and sitting very challenging exams, it was a great experience for me to meet with and learn from such inspiring people. Now I look forward to the new challenges to come!," said Ekaterina. Dr. Samuil Benatov, managing partner, commented: "As one of the leading trademark specialists in Bulgaria, Ekaterina constantly looks to acquire new qualifications and skills. We are proud of our colleague's success."
