INNOTEC: we co-fund your R&D&i project

Don’t leave any R&D project to gather dust!

That new adhesive material with you wanted to use to make your product more sustainable...

That new thread you are convinced you can develop using textile waste products...

The new sensors you have in mind to boost the performance of your project...

INNOTEC is the service of ACCIÓ that will help you make it possible. If you have an R&D project of between 50,000 and 200,000 euros, the INNOTEC grant can subsidize up to 70% of its cost.

The 2020 INNOTEC call will open soon.
