Innovation is one of the main factors behind Spain’s economic growth and one of the drivers of job creation, medium-term growth, productivity and higher competitiveness. Innovation is a necessary tool for responding to the needs and challenges of today’s society.
Spain is carrying out actions that encourage innovation in both companies and public entities. Innovation in companies is fostered through aid for R&D and innovation development, tax deductions, public-private venture capital initiatives, as well as public procurement, allowing service providers to offer higher value-added services and offering companies the opportunity to share risks.
One of the main pillars in the Spanish innovation strategy is to go global. This is achieved by supporting the participation of Spanish entities in several cooperation programmes like Horizon Europe or Eureka.
