"Horizon Europe" is celebrating its anniversary. The main EU funding initiative for research and innovation has just completed one lifetime year and the Centre for the Technological and Industrial Development (CDTI), in collaboration with the European Commission and the spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation, has organized the 11th Conference of the European Union Framework Programme for Research and Innovation, which Aitiip has attended as one of the Spanish Technology Centres that contribute to the construction of a "New Horizon for Europe".
The Conference has also hosted an exhibition of posters of projects coordinated by entities such as Aitiip, which have been funded by the Horizon Europe Programme (HE) or its predecessor, Horizon 2020 (H2020). The technology centre was able to present several of the European initiatives which is currently leading: SISTERS, VIBES, BIZENTE and MANDALA. All of them, aligned with new recycling technologies, and in which innovation plays a leading role, in order to establish the circular economy in future industrial value chains.
The Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, who chaired the event, wanted to highlight the importance of promoting Horizon Europe as a vehicle towards the culture of knowledge and innovation within the national productive fabric. A productive structure made up of technology centres that, like Aitiip, champion the progress and leadership of Spanish R&D&I, through a firm commitment to science and research.
