"Digitalisation Support Group (DSG)" 

In order to prepare for an e-EQE, the Supervisory Board set up an e-EQE Working Group wherein the Examination Secretariat of the EPO, IT specialists and three epi members work together to set up the framework of the e-EQE to be held for the first time in March 2021.

To support and assist the epi members in the e-EQE Working Group, epi has set up a Digitalisation Support group (DSG) under the umbrella of the PEC. In this support group the latest developments are discussed and also plans are developed to come to a new format of the EQE to enter into force in 2023.
