Niclas Morey

Director of IP5/Trilateral Affairs and International Organisations, European Patent Office

Mr Morey started his career in the EPO as a patent examiner in mechanics in 1990. In 1994 he began a long relationship with the International Co-operation side of the EPO, beginning with roles as Administrator for Central and Eastern Europe and Asia before moving on to his new position as Head of the International Cooperation with Asia. 

In 2000 he took a four-year break from international affairs to take up his new position as Head of the President's office. This role gave him an excellent knowledge of the EPO and the numerous external international players. Mr Morey's next position was as Project Leader co-operation with Asia (and subsequently Head of Asia Unit). He was based in Bangkok for 3 years at the Thai Ministry of Commerce within the premises of the Department of Intellectual Property (DIP). Mr Morey launched the IPR2 project with China, funded by the European Union, in 2007/2008. He has been Director of IP5/Trilateral Affairs and International Organisations at the EPO since April 2008.

Mr Morey received his Master of Science (MSc) in Mechanical Engineering from the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden in 1990 and his Degree in Applied Economics from the Verwaltungs und Wirtschaftsakademie in Munich in 1994.
