Strategic Projects Centres Companies
Financing of R&D projects in technology centers, in collaboration with companies, in order to promote research and knowledge transfer
The eligible budget for each project included in the application will be a minimum of € 100,000.00 and a maximum of € 2,000,000.00.
For the project to be considered eligible, it must be carried out in effective collaboration with at least two independent companies.
Projects in collaboration with companies in which the technology center participates directly or indirectly will not be eligible.
Each applicant entity may submit a maximum of 5 projects.
The projects will have a maximum duration of 3 years.
The subsidy percentage will be:
a) 65% for Industrial Research projects.
b) 40% for experimental development projects.
c) When 3 companies participate in the project, it will have an additional 5%, and when four or more companies participate, it will have an additional 10%.
d) In all cases, there will be an additional 5% for those projects that, applying the evaluation criteria, exceed 60 points.
Cartif has been participating in the R&D financing programme of the Junta de Castilla y León since its inception, through the development of technology to companies and supporting the placing on the market of the technologies developed.
CARTIF, as a technological centre regulated by RD 2093/2008, must ensure that at least 30% of its turnover comes from private companies’ funds. That is why the financing of the Castilla y León Institute of Business Competitiveness is a boost to achieve compliance with this indicator.
The Centre has collaborated with companies from countless sectors, contributing to the improvement of their competitiveness, giving greater value to their processes and products.

SRURAL aims to investigate and advance in recognized disruptive technologies (cognitive computing, edge computing and dynamic geo-information), in addition to demonstrate their application in our natural spaces and their extensive cultural heritage (cultural landscapes as a whole), in such a way that causes a real transformation of the territory providing practical ways of proceeding with management
Explore new vegetable protein sources, mainly native legume species from Castilla y León region which, together with the inclusion of agri-food by-products and by means of using technologies such extrusion cooking and texturization, allow the generation of innovative and alternative-to-meat products with nutritional, functional and imporved organoleptic characteristics.
DELOREAN aims to obtain new raw materials from the treatment of waste generated in a critical sector in the región, the automotive industry. The three wastes investigated (tires, lubricating oils and polypropylene) are generated in high quantities and their polluting nature makes it necessary to develop new ways for their management and use.
“Intelligent Visual Computing for products/processes in the agri-food sector” is an industrial research project framed in the field of computer vision (digital enabler of Industry 4.0) associated with the agrifood sector.
REPLACE aims at developing new methodologies to try to solve a critical environmental problem, the destruction of plastic wastes proceeding from petroleum.
The objective of the Optigrid project is the research and development of concepts and services that allow greater flexibility in electricity generation and demand.
Smart Factory project has addressed industrial research and technological validation of advanced data and information management systems for manufacturing industries in Castilla y León.
i-Visart, “New artificial vision methodologies for the visual inspection of highly reflective and textured surfaces”.
It is an industrial research project framed in the field of computer vision (digital enabler of industry 4.0) associated with the industrial sector.
The NBS-Lab project research on the functional use of natural resources to solve environmental problems arising from current climate change and ecosystem deterioration of urban and peri-urban areas.
The project seeks competitive positioning of regional companies in the field of Nature Based Solutions (NBS).
The main objective is the development of advanced methods for energy planning at different scales (building to region), that support the development of tools. It will offer a working basis to those entities responsible of the generation, deployment and evaluation of energy actions aimed at the compliance with the energy efficiency objectives 2020–2050
