Important note to the candidates integrating the shortlist

Shortlisted candidates must bear in mind that withdrawals have a serious impact on the selection procedure as well as on the smooth running of the PEs Programme itself.

Integrating a shortlist implies that other graduates have not been able to participate in the PES Programme due to the limited number of traineeships posts.

It is therefore expected that all candidates give considerate thought to their application and take upon the necessary commitment until the final selection takes place.


 

Final notes

The number of selected candidates will be established by the EUIPO and the EPO taking into consideration the maximum number of traineeships offered yearly.

Both Offices reserve the right to select the candidates from the shortlists according to the matching of each profile of the applications and the Office’ traineeship needs/posts.
