TECNIOspring PLUS, open to companies
TECNIOspring PLUS, ACCIÓ's fellowship programme, provides financial support to individual mobility proposals presented by experienced researchers in liaison with a host entity. Fellows are offered 2-year employment contracts in order to develop applied research projects at the host entity of their choice.
Host entities may be entities of the industrial sector -companies based in Catalonia - or entities recognised with the TECNIO accreditation.
The programme will involve industry in several ways. First, as said above, companies involved in research and technology transfer processes are elegible as host organisations. Second, fellows hosted by research centers will be seconded to a company already interested in the outcomes of the applied research project.
With a budget of 10,04 MMEUR and co-financed by the H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie actions of the European Union, TECNIOspring PLUS foresees to award 72 fellowships for the 2016-2021 period.
