Investment Grants

We advance that recently the Spanish Patent and Trademark Office has confirmed that this year a new call for proposals will open to recover part of the expenditure on official rates and translations for utility models or patents in Spain or abroad Spanish owners.

The announcement and official rules have not yet been published but is estimated that the requirements and deadlines will be posted in March (probably for Easter) to request the aid that will surely be a month from that publication.

As in previous years, there will be two different aid programs: the program for the Promotion of Patents and Utility Models Abroad and the program for the Promotion of Patents and Utility Models Original (SME). 4,320,900 euros will be allocated (about 400,000 euros more than last year) to the first program and 231,800 euros (similar to last year's figure) to the second program for SMEs.

The eligible activities for the program Overseas rates are associated with regional or national applications, searches, surveys, annuities European prior grant, awards and translations of complete report, provided it comes from a Spanish priority (patent application or utility model Spanish , European application or PCT filed in Spain) or European or PCT applications filed in Spain.

Eligible activities for the national program for SMEs are application fees for patents or utility models and rates of the Report of the State of the Art.

As it is usual in our firm, we confirm that  again this year we will help you dealing with such benefits. Any questions you may encounter, we will remain available.
