Kurt Haertel (September 26, 1910, Berlin – March 30, 2000, Seefeld am Ammersee[1]) was a German patent lawyer.[1] He played a leading role in the establishment of the European patent system.[2] He is sometimes referred to as one of the "fathers of the European patent law",[1] or the "father of European patent law".[3] He was President of the Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt (German Patent and Trade Mark Office) from 1963 to 1975.[1] In October 1977, he was elected Honorary Chairman of the Administrative Council of the European Patent Organisation.[4]

European Patent Office, Kurt-Haertel-Passage

Since 2003, a street in Munich, Germany, is named after him, the "Kurt-Haertel-Passage".[1] This is the connecting path from the Grasserstraße to the Bayerstraße[1] near the buildings of the European Patent Office.[5]
