Why the EPO?
The European Patent Office (EPO) is the second-largest European organisation, employing almost 7 000 staff from over 30 countries.
The EPO is an equal opportunity employer providing our staff with the chance to build long-term stable careers. We offer one of the most comprehensive and family-friendly benefits packages in Europe.
Relocating to the EPO sites - Munich, The Hague, Berlin and Vienna - is made easier by frequent social events and a wide variety of clubs and communities in which staff can get together in their free time and pursue shared interests.
Our staff work in Munich, The Hague, Berlin and Vienna. Find out more about EPO facilities and life at each location.
