Patent research grants – EPO call for proposals 2020

For the fourth edition, the European Patent Office-EPO has just announced the call for proposals 2020 for funding under its Academic Research Programme.

The EPO recognizes the importance of high-quality research on patent-related intellectual property (IP) matters to inform policymakers and facilitate sound business decisions in a context where intangible assets, innovation, and IP rights have become pivotal in the economy. With this research program, the EPO seeks in particular to encourage more academic research on the role of patents in the European economy and to promote the dissemination of research results.

Grants of up to EUR 100 000 are awarded. The deadline is 16 June 2020.
