  • Introduction

    The 2nd application window of the Ideas Powered for business SME Fund was launched on the 1st March 2021 by the EUIPO with the collaboration of the national IP offices. This 20 million grant scheme for European SMEs offers financial support, namely 50% off trade mark and design application fees (national and European) and also 75% off on IP Pre-diagnostic services (IP Scan).

    This third SME Fund webinar will provide an informative discussion on how an IP Scan service can help SMEs to discover and manage their existing IP assets (trade marks, patents, designs, trade secrets etc.) to achieve more business growth using their IP assets. EUIPO speaker Maria Baldares and Hans Helsloot from the Netherlands Enterprise Agency will also be explaining how an IP Scan is carried out giving some real life examples of IP Pre-diagnostic services carried with European SMEs.
