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.
This is different from public procurement contracts, where EUIPO receives a product or service in return for payment. The operators involved in these cases are selected via calls for tender.
All our grant procedures are governed by the European Parliament and Council Regulation No 966/2012, which is applicable to the Union's general budget together with its rules of application (Commission Delegated Regulation No 1268/2012).
Interested parties can apply by responding to the following calls for proposals:
|Call reference||Calls for proposals title||Status||Deadline for submission||Selection results|
|GR/001/15||Support for awareness raising activities about the value of Intellectual Property and the damages of counterfeiting and piracy||Closed||31/03/2015||
List of selected projects
If you encounter any technical problem, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
All personal data collected by the Office are processed in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies and on the free movement of such data.
