main national calls for funding of cooperative R&D projects
In the coming days, some of the main national calls for cooperative R&D project funding will be published. These calls are endowed with funds from the Recovery and Resilience Mechanism, so it will be essential to pay special attention to compliance with aspects such as DNSH (do not significant harm).
On the other hand, in addition to the advantage of taking advantage of R&D synergies with the participants in the consortium and the technological enrichment that participation in a collaborative project entails, in some cases the complexity of the administrative management of a project of these characteristics can be a barrier, so it is essential to establish an optimal model of operation, coordination and monitoring from the conception of the idea to the justification and final certification of the project.
1. R&D&I PROJECTS IN STRATEGIC LINES
The publication of the call for R&D&I Projects in Strategic Lines for 2022 is scheduled for the next few days. This is a call managed by the State Innovation Agency (AEI) that finances projects executed in consortium between companies and research organizations. The projects must have a minimum budget of 400,000 € and a maximum of 2 million euros. For this next call, 18 thematic priorities have been defined with a clear focus on digitalization, security and sustainability in the development of economic activity and the health and welfare of society. The activity of companies will be financed by appropriations, while research organizations will receive subsidies.
2. SCIENCE AND INNOVATION MISSIONS PROGRAM
The MISSIONS Science and Innovation program will be managed by CDTI and is also expected to be published before the end of the first half of 2022. This program aims to promote the implementation of projects with a strong R&D component in cooperation between companies in which a substantial participation of research organizations as subcontractors will be mandatory. For the time being, the thematic priorities for this new call have not been officially published, although the main lines have been defined (which include the introduction of new missions associated with some of the approved PERTEs): reinforcement of capacities to achieve sustainable energy autonomy, promotion of the industrial revolution of the 21st century based on digitalization, more sustainable agriculture, new technologies for the naval sector, recovery and valorization of mineral resources and strategic materials, and development and strengthening of an integrated photonics ecosystem in Spain.
3. AERONAUTICS TECHNOLOGY PROGRAM
These calls are joined by the Aeronautical Technology Program, managed by CDTI and recently published. In this case, projects carried out in consortium will be financed in 3 different modalities: PTA Large companies (with participation of SMEs), PTA SMEs and PTA Large strategic projects (to promote demonstration projects for the use of hydrogen in aircraft). The projects will have to focus on technologies that will make the “zero-emission aircraft” a reality, intelligent and advanced manufacturing, unmanned aircraft (UAs) and reinforcement of national capabilities in aircraft design, development and production. The grants will take the form of a non-repayable grant and the deadline for applications is July 14, 2022.
At Euro-Funding we develop financing maps for each project by analyzing the different public calls for grants and loans at regional, state and European level. Our technical team analyzes the investment plans to develop a customized financing scenario.
