The Activa Startups program is aimed at SMEs and emerging companies with the aim of promoting the company’s digital transformation through collaboration and open innovation.
To this end, each SME will pose an innovation challenge to be solved with the help of startups, seeking innovation through solutions based on disruptive technologies. At the same time, startups can also submit their solutions.
These grants of up to 40,000 euros will be awarded to finance the expenses arising from innovation processes of SMEs through collaboration with startups. The actions to be financed may be any of the following:
- Actions based on the validation and adoption of disruptive technologies that can be used to develop new products, processes or services.
- Actions based on the digitization of SMEs, knowledge and technology transfer, proof of concept or production of prototypes, among others.
The assessment criteria for the Activa Startups grants are based on the suitability of the challenge and the proposed resolution, the degree of innovation of the proposed solution, the team involved in the project and the socio-economic and environmental impact.
