The “Technological Research and Development” Incentives System for stimulating corporate investment in R&D aims to support projects that create and bring dynamism to a “Co-development R&D Centre” involving qualified human resources from several co-developers, specifically non-corporate entities from the R&I system who are associated in the form of a consortium, led by a SME, to execute a set of activities to develop or strengthen competences inside companies in the field of R&D, with a view to technology transfer and knowledge sharing.
R&D Centres for co-developed projects aim to create and bring dynamism to R&D structures in a collaborative manner, based on setting up medium- and long-term strategic partnerships between different players in the R&I system. Their main objectives are cooperation on the identification of challenges - joint planning of activities for the development of new technologies - on the definition of projects, on carrying out long-term forward-looking technological activities, on conducting technological feasibility studies, sharing resources and infrastructure, and the mobility and/or exchange of qualified human resources between companies, or between companies and R&D organisations, with a view to technology transfer and knowledge sharing, based on shared activity plans.
