Italy: three new measures to finance companies for Patents (Brevetti+), Designs (Disegni+) and Trademarks (Marchi+)
It’s about three financial measures (grants) promoted by the Ministry of the Economic Development aiming at supporting the Italian SMEs to protect and enhance the intellectual property.
38 million euros are available in 2021.
The re-financing of the 3 tenders are due to the Strategic Plan for the Intellectual Property for the three-year period 2021-2023, that is part of the context of the Recovery Plan (PNRR) reforms.
SMEs could obtain grants for covering up to 80% of the costs incurred for Patents, Designs and Trademarks.
The re-opening of the fund desk will be in August-September 2021.
