Procurement of Innovation platform

Spain

Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology

The Spanish competence centre for innovation procurement is established under the Spanish Ministry for Economy, Industry and Competitiveness (and the Secretariat General for Science and Innovation – which holds the responsibility of fostering innovation procurement in Spain).

The centre itself is represented in Procure2Innovate by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), with support from both the Carlos III Health Institute and the National Institute of Aerospace Technology. This structure is geared towards a more concerted national effort towards effective innovation procurement in Spain, and with the goal of providing better access for public and private companies, especially in the fields of information and communication technologies (ICT) and health.

The concerted network of Spanish competence centres is represented in Procure2Innovate by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI). We are the main focal point for any kind of innovation procurement financial support, as well the manager of the ‘Innodemanda’ programme and a ‘non-official’ national contact point for innovation procurement-related topics.
