The State Plan is the State Administration's main instrument for the development and achievement of the objectives of the Spanish Science, Technology and Innovation Strategy (EECTI).
The EECTI 2021-2027, in force, is structured into two state plans, the 2021-2023 State Plan, which is being implemented at the moment, and the 2024-2027 State Plan. The plans include the state aid for R&D&I implemented by the State Administration. A considerable percentage of these grants are implemented through competitive calls.
The PEICTI 2021-2023 has been carried out using the contributions and priorities of public research centres, universities, technology centres, business associations, technology platforms and experts from the scientific, technical and business communities.
The PEICTI 2021-2023 comprises four state programmes that correspond to the general objectives set out in the EECTI 2021-2027.
The programmes include:
- State programme to address the priorities of our environment.
- State programme to promote scientific and technical research and its transfer.
- State programme to develop, attract and retain talent.
- State programme to catalyse innovation and business leadership.
