This is the underlying reason for the Patent.Scheck. The funding enables payment for services such as rapid clarification whether patent protection is possible at all, as well as patent registration and patent monitoring services. Costs may amount to a maximum of EUR 12,500. In these cases, FFG will assume EUR 10,000 or 80% of the costs.
