New opportunity for companies to apply for EU funding

From 10 January 2022, the opportunity opened up for small and medium-sized enterprises to apply for grants from EUIPO's SME Fund. The application period runs between January 10 and December 16

As an entrepreneur, you now have the opportunity to receive compensation both for a professional review of your company's intangible assets, a so-called IP Scan, and for the fee for registering trademarks, designs and patents.

Two different offers
The first offer is a grant of 1500 euros that you choose how you want to use. You can choose to do an IP scan and get back 90% of the cost. You can also get back 75% of the basic fee when you apply to register a trademark or design with EUIPO or another EU authority, including PRV, or get back 50% of the basic fee when you apply to register a trademark or design outside EU.

The second offer gives you the opportunity to get back up to 50% of the application fee for a national patent application, however a maximum of 750 euros.
