International Cooperation with Companies

The projects of international cooperation promote scientific and technological cooperation between companies of different countries. By doing so, they seek to incorporate knowledge in the productive process in order to improve the competitiveness of companies and promote collaboration of the private sector with research centres.

 

The projects of international cooperation receive financing through the International Non-Refundable Contributions (International ANR and ANR FONSOFT International Window) of the National Agency for Science and Technology Promotion. Moreover, the initiatives may apply for the  loans for modernization projects  of the Agency.

 

How to cooperate with a foreign company

 

The submittal of joint projects may be made through bilateral cooperation or in the context of multilateral programmes of cooperation. Those companies which pretend to receive financing of international cooperation projects must obtain the Certificate of International Cooperation issued by the National Directorate of International Relations. The area of International Cooperation with Companies of the Ministry provides the necessary advise to obtain the certificate, as well as help in the search for partners and formulation of the Project Idea.

 

a. Formulation of the Project Idea

The presentation of the Project Idea is an optional stage for those national companies which have an innovative idea. Its formulation allows the interested party to know if the proposal complies with the financing criteria of the International ANR. The formulation of the Idea must be made in the area of International Cooperation with Companies before submitting the project's joint form.
