New program for co-financing IP procedures

The Slovenian Enterprise Fund (hereinafter: the SEF) introduces a new program of incentives in 2019, i.e. vouchers. It will provide companies with significantly simplified access to co-financing of individual services, through which they will strengthen their competitiveness and competences. In five years, a total of 22.5 million euros will be available.

SEF will publish public calls for vouchers with different content gradually. After for co-financing the costs of obtaining quality certificates and for co-financing costs through intellectual property protection procedures, published in January, on 22 February 2019 SEF has published vouchers to assist with internationalization as follows:

  • vouchers for participation in economic delegations abroad,
  • vouchers for participation in international forums,
  •  vouchers for group presentations of the Slovenian economy at trade fairs abroad,
  • vouchers for market research of foreign markets

From an individual approved voucher companies will be able to obtain co-financing of 60% of costs (including some legal costs). The maximum value they can obtain for each voucher is up to 10,000 euros. The total amount of vouchers that a company can use is 30,000 euros per year. The costs for all content areas of vouchers will be eligible as from 1 January 2019, so companies should be able to store supporting documents (contractor selection, invoices, payment receipts, etc.).

Therefore, if you are interested in the new co-financing program, it is essential that you submit your application in time and before that check whether you fulfil the conditions in accordance with the program.
