As reported here the UK Government offers funding up to £3000 inc. VAT for companies to have an ‘IP Audit’.

This popular scheme has meant that applicants can find out much more about what IP they have, what they might have, and what they can do with it – without having to pay anything at all.

Applications for IP Audits will not be accepted after 31 January 2015 until further notice.  So, now is the time to try to take up this excellent opportunity.  You can apply for an IP Audit only if you are engaged on one of the IPO’s partner support schemes.  They are GrowthAccelerator, Welsh Government, and Scottish Enterprise [including Highlands and Islands Enterprise].
