In a constantly changing business world, protecting intellectual property is not just a whim, but a necessity. And, as inflation continues to rise, every penny counts.
Thus, the European funds through EUIPO for SMEs in 2024 represent an extraordinary opportunity for small and medium-sized enterprises to secure their trademarks and industrial designs, and we are here to turn this opportunity into reality.
This year, the EUIPO Fund renews its commitment to support SMEs by covering up to 75% of the official fees for registering trademarks and designs, reimbursing up to a maximum of 1,000 EUR.
For example, if you want to register an EU trademark (protected in each EU member state) for a Nisa class, let’s say “online sale of shoes”, then the official fees are 850 EUR. Through the Fund, you will be reimbursed 637.5 EUR, namely 75% of 850 EUR. The difference of 362.5 EUR can be used to reimburse the fees for registering other trademarks.
We are proud to say that in 2023 we successfully obtained funding for all applications submitted on behalf of our clients, and in some cases, we accessed the funds in just one week – a rarity in the bureaucratic world.
It is important to mention that, although we strive to optimize each process, the time required to access the funds can vary depending on the complexity of each application and the workflow of EUIPO.
Do not miss the opportunity to protect your innovations and creations. With our experience and knowledge, we can guide you step by step through the application process and maximize your chances of success.
