EU IPA4SMEs award
Submission of a patent is not a small thing! For the second time (2019 and 2021) the EU acknowledges the potential of our innovative technology and grants us this award to finance submission of our patents to the European Patent Office (EPO). This European action helped us define our IP strategy and objectives initially through a pre-diagnostics service realized by INPI (www.inpi.fr), followed up by direct contribution to patent attorney and EPO submission related fees. We got our first patent filed and the second one is in preparation. This award can go up to 15 K€ and is only granted to laureates of European Seal of Excellence. Thanks to the EU for this precious support!
