Catalonia, first European region in fundraising for innovation at SMEs
Catalonia is, of all Europe, the region that has obtained from the European Commission the highest fundraising devoted to innovation projects for small and medium-sized enterprises. In particular, according to ACCIÓ, 148 Catalan SMEs have obtained €61.9m of non-refundable funding for research, development and innovation projects. In this manner, Catalonia establishes itself on top of regions such as south-east Ireland (€50.2m), Madrid (€48.3m), Lombardy (€45.8m) and l’Ille de France (€35.5m), with a total fundraising similar to that of countries such as the Netherlands (€65.6m) or Finland (€65.3m), and above other countries such as Ireland (€59.1m) or Austria (€24.5m).
