The Ministry of Science and Innovation, through the Center for Industrial Technological Development (CDTI), promotes the Innvierte program, which is part of the Spanish Strategy for Science, Technology and Innovation 2021-2027, approved by Agreement of the Council of Ministers in September 2020. This strategy contains the objectives, reforms and measures that must be adopted in the entire field of Research and Development and Innovation (R&D&I) in order to boost its growth and impact, and is one of the pillars on which is based the design of the Government’s R+D+I policy for the coming years.
