The performance of INOVA+ covers the different aspects of innovation management in large companies and SMEs, strengthening the link between their operating cycle and the innovation cycle.
In this process, we stand out due to our ability to involve technological partners (R&D Centres and Universities) essential to stimulate the RDI activity, thereby enhancing the presentation of new solutions to market and differentiation within the market.
This integrated approach enhances the framework of the corporate activity in opportunities of national and European funding.
The public funding mechanisms can be a supplement or even a substitute of private investment and credit instruments, especially in higher risk areas such as R&D, product innovation and internationalization.
With the new community framework of structural funds for the period 2014-2020 (Portugal 2020) in the amount of approximately EUR 25 billion, a new window of opportunities for different types of organizations is open – Companies, Scientific Entities and of Institutional or Public nature.
The increased complexity and competitiveness in accessing public funding sources requires the adoption of new performance strategies in addressing these opportunities.
We contribute towards the success of customer organizations in the design and preparation applications for public funding, with a success rate of 90% in the previous community framework.
In force until 2020, SIFIDE II continues to establish itself as one of the most advantageous tools for companies that promote R&D activities, supporting expenses related to R&D, including human resources, in a logic of deduction of investments made in the previous year in the collection of IRC (Corporate Income Tax).
Whilst initially SIFIDE was seen as an instrument of simplified access, currently there is a greater complexity in the assessment criteria for projects submitted, including the recognition of its R&D nature and acceptance of expenses. Thus, it is vital to focus on the technical and scientific justification.
We have a highly qualified team with technical and scientific skills necessary for the process of analysis, selection and the grounds of the projects to be included in the SIFIDE application, meeting the current assessment criteria and enhancing the maximization of the approved incentive.
