I have been working in the world of Intellectual Property for more than 30 years. I started as a patent examiner (mechanical specialty) at the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office (OEPM) in the Technological Information Department. In 2013 I joined the Management Support Unit of the OEPM and was in charge of the SME Support Service for 6 years. In 2019 I was assigned to the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) as Seconded National Expert. Since then I have been working in the Customer Department, mainly in the SME Program.
