BONUS WEBINAR: Introduction to the Madrid Application Assistant

This year we have launched a new tool to guide you in preparing international applications: the Madrid Application Assistant. It provides the option to file international applications and helps you generate high-quality application files in an intuitive and linear manner, when online filing isn’t already offered by your Office of origin.
