The EUIPO and the European Commission launched the 2024 edition of the SME Fund, which offers intellectual property vouchers for EU-based small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).
SMEs may apply until 6 December 2024 to receive grants financing up to 75% of the official fees for protection of their marks and designs at national, EU and international level.
The application process is as easy as possible. The non-repayable financial aid may be used for reimbursement of the following fees:
– 75% of the official fees for application and registration of national marks and designs or EU marks and designs.
– 50% of the official fees for application and registration of marks and designs in non-EU countries.
After applying and receiving the approval for funding, the relevant activity should be undertaken, i.e. one or more applications for mark or design shall be prepared and filed. The fees for the applications shall be paid by the SME, and the fund subsequently reimburses the relevant percentage of the amounts thus paid.
If you would like to protect your marks and designs at significantly reduced costs, do not hesitate to contact us: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
