With the publication in the Federal Gazette, the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Protection (BMWK) has launched a new funding phase of its funding programme “WIPANO – Knowledge and Technology Transfer through Patents and Standards” for the years 2024-2027.
The WIPANO programme supports the use of the creative potential of small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in particular that have not registered a patent or utility model in the last three years.
As part of the programme, companies can receive a grant of up to 50% of the costs of a patent application (legal and official fees). A prior art search is mandatory at the beginning of the programme. As one of the leading German companies in the field of patent searches, Serviva GmbH offers this service cost-effectively and in excellent quality.
