NanoEcho has been awarded a grant from the SME (Small and Medium Enterprises) -fund within the European Union Intellectual Property Office to cover initial fees related to a new patent application and trademark protection. These grants are provided to support the management of intellectual property assets for European SMEs.
The SME Fund offers financial support to small and medium-sized companies established within the European Union to secure their intellectual property rights. The approved grant allows NanoEcho to apply for reimbursement for the initial application fees in the event of a future intellectual property application. This reimbursement can cover up to around 75% of the expenses.
The activation period for the grant extends over two months. If necessary, NanoEcho has the option to apply for an extension of another two months under the same conditions.
"We continue to work continuously to strengthen our patent portfolio in accordance with our strategy for immaterial capital. We are very grateful to have been awarded this grant. Once again, this external review confirms a recognition of our business", says Linda Persson, CEO of NanoEcho.
