Biotechnology/Chemical/Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership
Tuesday, June 4, 2013
9:00am to 4:15pm
United States Patent and Trademark Office
600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, VA
The most recent quarterly meeting for the Biotechnology and Chemical Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership was held on January 29, 2013 at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. The Biotechnology and Chemical Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership is designed and developed to be a forum to share ideas, experiences, and insights between individual users and the USPTO. The USPTO does not intend to use these customer partnership groups to arrive at any consensus. Invitations to participate will indicate that individual opinions are sought, rather than a group consensus and that the meetings are intended to be informal in nature and have varying participants. These customer partnership groups are formed with full recognition of the USPTO's responsibility under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), and that these customer partnership groups are not established as FACA compliant committees.
We value our customers in obtaining feedback from individual participants is important in our efforts to continuously improve the quality of our products and services. Your willing participation is helpful in providing us with insights and experiences in this informal process to assist us.
The next meeting of the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office Biotechnology and Chemical Pharmaceutical Customer Partnership is scheduled for Tuesday, June 4, 2013 from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm at Auditorium in Madison East, 600 Dulany Street, Alexandria, Virginia.
