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 host organisations; and fellows hosted by research organisation may be seconded to a company (cross-sectoral secondments) or spend some time there (short visits).
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.
