The Spanish Patent and Trade Mark Office (SPTO) has announced new subsidies to promote applications for patents and utility models in Spain and abroad in 2015. The aim is to encourage Spanish companies to use industrial property as a tool to access international markets.

These subsidies aim to stimulate international protection of technology through patents or utility models and help boost the competitiveness of private-sector organizations moving into foreign markets.

Additionally, they also hope to foster the protection of national inventions by SMEs and individuals through patents and utility models.

Subsidies will be granted to cover one application for a patent or utility model with national patent offices in other countries or regional patent offices; activities carried out under international PCT procedures and requests for Spanish patent and utility models.  

Applications must be submitted through the SPTO online platform before 23 April 2015.
