New funding opportunity from September 1


 

The SME Fund, the EUIPO’s initiative that grants financial aid for intellectual property (IP) matters, is open throughout September.

The Fund is open to small business as well as IP lawyers and representatives who can apply and can carry out the full procedure on behalf of their clients.

Small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can save up to EUR 1 500 in trade mark and design basic application fees and IP pre-diagnostic services.

Since its launch in January 2021, the SME Fund has provided financial support to more than 8 000 European SMEs from all 27 EU Member States that have applied for trade mark and design protection. The largest number of applications have been from SMEs based in Spain (886), followed by Germany (860) and Italy (773).

More than 13 000 trade mark and 3 400 design have been requested at national, regional and EU level. Applications for IP pre-diagnostic services (IP Scan) are also on the rise, with 487 requests to date.
