At the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) we make direct financial contributions in the form of grants to third-party beneficiaries to support projects that serve our policies.
The beneficiaries of EUIPO's grants are selected via calls for proposals. They receive a subsidy based on the actual costs incurred for carrying out the activities set out in the call. Their results remain the property of the beneficiaries.
For UK applicants
Please be aware that following the entry into force of the EU-UK Withdrawal Agreement* on 1 February 2020 and in particular Articles 127(6), 137 and 138, the references to natural or legal persons residing or established in a Member State of the European Union are to be understood as including natural or legal persons residing or established in the United Kingdom. UK residents and entities are therefore eligible to participate under calls launched by the EUIPO.

If you encounter any technical problem, please contact us at email@example.com. Please note that you may not discuss any aspect of an ongoing call for proposals with our staff.
Once the deadline for submission is over, all applications received for a specific call will be assessed by an Evaluation Committee against the criteria published in the call for proposals, according to the selection process.
Notification of results
All applicants (successful and non-successful) will simultaneously receive a written notification on the outcome of their application within six months from the publication of the call. Where possible, reserve lists may be drawn up.
If the Office has approved your proposal, you will receive a grant agreement within three months from the notification of results. This grant agreement will be based on the ‘Model grant agreement' that was published in the call documents.
Once the grant agreement has been signed by both parties, beneficiaries will find all the documentation needed for the management and implementation of their projects on the relevant call page.
