Funding Description: 

The new Academic Research Programme of the European Patent Office (EPO) offers financial support for academic research on patent-related matters. The programme will award grants of up to EUR 100 000 to winning proposals. This initiative will complement the EPO's long-standing commitment to support research on patent data through its Worldwide Patent Statistical Database (PATSTAT).

The deadline for proposals is 15 June 2017.

"The EPO recognises the importance of high-quality research on patent-related matters to inform policymaking and facilitate sound business decisions," said President Benoît Battistelli. "With this research programme, it will promote academic research on the increasingly pivotal role of innovation and patents in the European economy."

The first annual call for projects under the new programme focuses on six thematic areas spanning various disciplinary fields, including economics, IP management, IP law and data sciences:

  1. The European patent system's impact on trade and investment in Europe
  2. Patent services and intermediaries in Europe
  3. IP business models and patent valuation methods
  4. Patents for SMEs and universities in Europe
  5. Patents and climate change mitigation technologies
  6. Advanced use of PATSTAT and patent analytics.

Interdisciplinary projects are welcome
