The Support System for Collective Actions aims to strengthen the transfer of scientific and technological knowledge to the business sector and boost the economic value of R&D (Research and Development) results produced by the R&I (Research and Innovation) system.
The beneficiaries of this support are R&I non-corporate entities which propose to develop projects within the scope of their competences and which aim to boost the creation or improvement of the surrounding conditions, with particular focus on collective and intangible competitiveness factors, materialising in the provision of goods and/or services with a transversal socio-economic impact, capable of inducing sustainable effects on the economy's internationalisation and which are not liable to private appropriation nor to conferring advantage to a specific company or restricted group of companies.
The Collective Actions should demonstrate a collective, comprehensive and non-discriminatory nature, which may respond to common risks and opportunities of a large group of companies, guarantee a wide publicity of its results, complemented by demonstration and dissemination actions, and ensure the free and universal availability of all goods and services produced, without particular benefit to any entity.
