The European Commission has launched a survey on the experiences of the EPC and the Alert Mechanism. As you know these are still run as “pilots” and the results of the evaluation will help decide how the EPC should be extended to other professions. It is very important that we all respond to this survey in order to highlight what works in practise and where things must be improved.
The survey is now available through the following website: https://ec.europa.eu/eusurvey/runner/EPCAlertSurvey2017 in English, French and German. From 22nd March the survey will be available in all official EU languages.
The survey deadline is 3rd May 2017.
