LONDON, U.K. (June 13, 2024) – SoftServe, a premier IT consulting and digital services provider, today announced a framework contract with the European Patent Office (EPO) to provide support services for information security systems. Recognizing the paramount importance of maintaining the highest security standards for its Strategic Plan 2028, the EPO has entrusted SoftServe with a three-year contract, valued at €30 million, with the option for a two-year extension.

“In today's digital age, the stakes for software security, especially concerning the development and protection of patents, have never been higher,” said Volodymyr Semenyshyn, SoftServe’s President, EMEA. "Our collaboration with the EPO underscores our unwavering commitment to safeguarding the integrity of sensitive enterprise and private data across Europe.”

The European Patent Office, an independent intergovernmental organization with a workforce of 6,300 and a budget of €2.6B, conducts rigorous examinations of patent applications that span up to 44 countries through a single streamlined process.
