Joana Piriquito Santos, in her capacity as Vice-President of the UNION-IP Patents Committee, participated as moderator in the roundtable, which this year focused on the topic "What Does My Claim Cover? Intended and Unintended Consequences of Amendments During Prosecution and PostGrant Proceedings".

This year's edition featured representatives from the European Patent Office, industry, experienced practitioners and judges from German, Dutch and English specialised courts, some of them designated as judges of the future Unified Patent Court, who shared their views on national practice and how amendments to the description of a patent may affect its scope of protection.

The event took place on 24 February at the German Patent and Trademark Office in Munich.
