£1m Collaborative R&D fund with Catalonia Now Open – Apply Now

Working with Catalonia Trade and Investment (ACCIÓ), Scottish Enterprise (SE) is investing at least £1 million to fund international collaborations that lead to new products, services or processes. This is an exciting opportunity for Scottish companies looking to develop world class innovations, linking them with leading players in Catalonia: not just facilitating access to new technologies and ideas but also to new international markets

To be eligible to apply to this call the consortium must contain a minimum of one Scottish and one Catalan company. We expect the Scottish element of joint projects to have total eligible costs between £150,000 and £350,000. This value excludes eligible costs incurred by Catalan partners which is anticipated to be of approximately the same level. The total maximum grant available to Scottish applicants will be approximately £200,000.  This is an open call for proposals, although Scottish Enterprise and ACCIÓ share interest in Mobility, Industry 4.0 and Health Care.
