How is patent filing assistance arranged? Win4Expertise offers funding to partially cover the assistance costs incurred when filing patent applications, including fees and taxes, until the patents are granted. It also covers the cost of national validations of the European patent.
As a company, you know that your success is more than material production. Your intangible assets, including patents and intellectual property (IP), play a crucial role in shaping your business. At FI Group, we recognise the value of these intangible assets and help you identify and value them as strategic elements of your business. An expert will help you with a clear project plan to make your ideas work and support you with a strategy to secure the necessary funding.
