The Circular Economy Business R&D nuclei are the opportunity to develop new research and development projects related to waste in order to begin new processes in the company or improve existing ones using technological innovation.
These R&D nuclei are grants of up to 150,000 euros to develop projects in the production process of the applying company or to be implemented in another company.
The grants are aimed at projects with a minimum budget of 150,000 euros and the subsidy rate will be between 25% and 70%.
This call is implemented along with the Agència de Residus de Catalunya (Waste Agency of Catalonia - ARC) to help increase investment in R&D into waste in Catalonia.
The 2022 call for Circular economy R&D nuclei is closed.
