Just days after the good news that the Ministry of the Economy and Competitiveness had granted GoodGut €1.1 million under the 2016 Retos programme, the company found out that it will also receive support from the 2015 CDTI Neotec grants: €175,000.
In this case, the funding will not go to developing a specific project but be used to consolidate the company’s research lines and its laboratory located at the University of Girona Science and Technology Park.
The Neotec grants are among the most competitive in the science/business arena in Spain. More than 500 SMEs participated in this call for proposals. The aspects that the CDTI gives the most weight are that the business strategy be based on technological development, as a competitive factor to set the company apart, and that it has its own lines of R&D.
