SME Fund 2023
The Ideas Powered SME Fund 2023 will be launched on 23 January, EUIPO has announced. It will run until 15 December 2023.
From this date, European small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) can apply for voucher 1 (IP Scan, when applicable) and voucher 2 (trade marks and designs).
The SME Fund provides financial support to SMEs in the EU for the protection of their IP rights, by allowing them to apply for partial refunds of the IP pre-diagnostic service (IP Scan), trade mark and design applications and national patent applications.
In 2022, the second year of operation, there were 22,479 applications to the SME Fund from 27 EU countries. This was almost double the number of applications in 2021.
Spain was the top country for applications in 2022, followed by Poland, Italy, France and Germany, and three-quarters of the SMEs who applied were micro SMEs.
