Executive Agency for SMEs (EASME) on behalf of the European Commission, has put out a call for proposals for a coordination centre to provide innovative SMEs with IP Pre-diagnostic services.

This call for proposals intends to:
Facilitate access for SMEs to an effective protection and enforcement of their intellectual property by informing them about the benefits of using IP rights. 

Inform SMEs about the opportunities linked with this new unitary patent, and by reimbursing some of the associated cost of using the new unitary patent. 

The specific objective of this call for proposals is to ensure the provision of administrative and reimbursement services that are necessary in relation to the implementation of the support actions to be offered to the companies.
