SME Fund, filing trends and COVID-19: the ED update


In his latest video update the EUIPO’s Executive Director, Christian Archambeau, talks about the second window to apply for an SME Fund grant. The SME Fund is a €20 million scheme created to help European small to medium-sized enterprises access their intellectual property rights.

With more than 1 200 requests covering 3 000 intellectual property (IP) titles, the Ideas Powered for Business SME Fund opened its second application window from 1 to 31 March 2020.

Mr Archambeau also gave an update on current filing trends: there has been a remarkable increase in demand for EU trade marks (over 10%) and China was the number one source of applications in 2020.
