Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) Grant Fund – SME Fund 2024

Enterprise Europe Network Cyprus, as part of its activities, informs Cypriot SMEs about the possibilities offered by the EU SME Fund for financial support for their intellectual property (IP) protection activities. In particular, the SME Fund supports enterprises to protect different assets such as trademarks, designs, patents and plant varieties. Grants are awarded in the form of four “vouchers” covering the following activities:

  • IP Scan / IP Enforcement
  • Trademarks and Designs
  • Patents
  • Community Plant Variety

Applications are submitted via the online system of the European Union Intellectual Property Office (EUIPO) which is responsible for implementing the SME Fund.

More information is available on the EUIPO’s SME Fund website.

For any clarifications and support, interested businesses can contact the relevant national IP office (Intellectual Property Section – Department of the Registrar of Companies and Intellectual Property), tel: +357 22404357,
