Power your business with the new edition of the SME Fund!

After the success of the SME Fund in 2022, we are happy to launch the new SME Fund for 2023!

Through the tips and tricks in this webinar you will:

· Understand the benefits of the SME Fund for your small or medium-sized business;

· Learn how to apply in order to claim partial reimbursement for trade mark and/or design fees at national, regional, EU and international level and for an IP Scan.

This year 2 vouchers have been published.

· Voucher 1 – IP Scan: save 90 % on expert advice and guidance for your intellectual property strategy.

· Voucher 2 – Trade marks and designs: save 75 % on registration fees at national, regional or EU level and 50 % on protection outside the EU.

This webinar is for you if you are (or if you represent) an EU-based small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) that wants to protect its intellectual property rights. SMEs that applied last year can apply again this year.

A new fast track process is in place to speed up repeat applications.

The Ideas Powered for business SME Fund is a European Commission initiative implemented through the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO).
