Re: How has he survived?
Gosh to write a post like this you must be a management stooge of Battiselli or really alone, with no life, no friends.
If you believe that because EPO staff do not support Battistelli's actions, it is the proof they are good ones, then sorry mate: undergo a reality check asap
As to the alleged efficiency : the EPO was always efficient long before Battistelli (EPO was self-financed for decades). The only thing to put at Battistelli's credit is that he managed to have tons of weak patents granted whilst claiming this is efficient.
What a joke
