TECNIOspring PLUS is now open to companies
TECNIOspring PLUS is ACCIÓ's fellowship programme. It provides financial support to individual mobility proposals presented by experienced researchers in liaison with a host organisation. Fellows are offered 2-year employment contracts in order to develop applied research projects.
The new programme will involve industry as much as possible (companies as host organisations, cross-sectoral secondments) since companies involved in research and technology transfer processes will be eligible host organisations. Host organisations will be entities of the industrial sector -companies based in Catalonia- as well centres recognized with the TECNIO accreditation. This fact represents an increase of the potential beneficiaries with a view to enhance the impact of the programme.
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.
