CDTI CERVERA

Description

Aid for individual R&D projects developed by companies that collaborate with state-level Technology Centers on priority Cervera technologies. The applied research and business development projects will be for the creation or significant improvement of a production process, product or service.

Projects must demonstrate a differential technological aspect over existing technologies on the market.
These projects may comprise both industrial research and experimental development activities.

The essential characteristic of this typology of projects is that they necessarily have to be developed in a limited group of technological areas (Cervera priority technologies) and certain project activities are contracted to Technological Centers.

Personnel expenses are eligible; instrumental and material costs; costs of contractual research, technical knowledge and acquired patents, consulting and equivalent services (excluding those associated with the processing and management of the project); supplementary general expenses and other expenses derived from the project. The expense derived from the auditor’s report is also eligible.

All financed expenses must be used exclusively or derived directly from the supported R&D activity.All financed expenses must be used exclusively or derived directly from the supported R&D activity.

CARTIF participation

CDTI launches the Cervera transfer R&D program in January 2019. Since its publication, the Center has actively participated in advising companies on the advantages that this program reports compared to other existing aid to support R&D. . The priority lines in which the Center has the capacity to transfer knowledge are:

CARTIF has the capacity to transfer knowledge in the Cervera priority technology on the development of new materials and physical and / or chemical processes using the micro and nano scales to provide surfaces with specific properties, from the area of biotechnology and circular economy.

CARTIF has the capacity to transfer knowledge in the following priority technologies Cervera de Ecoinnovación: Elimination or substitution of harmful components in the formulation of products, development of processes with greater efficiency and reduction of the use of raw materials, economically viable recycling and recovery systems for waste , mainly for composite materials, complex plastic materials, electronic waste, etc., On-site soil recovery technologies, designed to isolate or destroy contaminating substances, and High-efficiency technologies and tools for water treatment that allow the increase of water resources. The technical areas involved are: Circular economy, natural resources and biotechnology.

CARTIF has extensive experience within the Cervera priority technology on Development of hybrid energy generation and storage systems with exclusive use of renewable technologies, applicable to products, infrastructure or buildings. These include those energy system developments applicable at various scales, from small products (EoT) to large infrastructures, through exclusively renewable solutions for generation, storage and energy efficiency. The areas involved are energy policy and Renewable Energies.

CARTIF has knowledge generated to transfer in relation to the three thematic priorities related to smart manufacturing. The areas involved are Industry 4.0 and Industrial Solutions.

CARTIF has a variety of experience, especially at the national level, in the Cervera thematic priority on personalization of medical devices, implants and prostheses, with solutions adapted to each patient, based on three-dimensional printing and bioprinting technologies. Regenerative medicine or cell therapy will constitute the knowledge base to generate both tissues and organs in vitro that allow the creation of bioimplants for the treatment of injuries or pathologies. The technical area involved is Health and Quality of Life.

CARTIF has extensive experience, especially in projects financed by the CDTI, within the Cervera priority technology on the development of functional ingredients and foods through the application of omics technologies. These technologies allow, through the use of high-performance tools for massive data analysis, in the context of food science, to improve human nutrition and its health consequences. Thus, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics are considered as techniques that allow us to delve into how food affects the prevention or evolution of diseases. The technical area involved is Food.

The Center has the capacity to develop projects within the two priority technologies of Deep Learning and Artificial Intelligence through the areas of Smart Grid, Industry 4.0 and Industrial Solutions.

CARTIF has the capacity to develop projects in the field of priority technology of Smart Grid Development (VANET) that include vehicles as network nodes and that respond to the challenge of increasing autonomous and self-guided vehicles, as well as communication and interaction with the rest of the infrastructures in the field of smart cities, through the Smart Cities area mainly.

Although the Center uses cybersecurity tools within its own developments, it has not generated knowledge in cybersecurity technology that can be transferred.
