SME Fund receives 15,000 applications

There were 15,000 applications to the Ideas Powered for business SME Fund in the first half of 2022, making a total of 28,000 applications since it was launched in January 2021.

The Fund was set up to help SMEs in EU member states with IP rights in the wake of the pandemic. It provides financial support for trade mark and design applications and the IP Scan service. It remains open until 16 December 2022, and grants of up to €2,250 are available.

Information on applying for grants is available on the SME Fund page.

According to EUIPO, the most popular countries for applications are:

  • Spain (2,652)
  • Italy (1,855)
  • Poland (1,702)
  • France (1,232)

Nearly 80% of applicants have had their first contact with IP through this initiative.

As a result of its success, the European Commission and the EUIPO have increased the Fund by €10 million.
