DigitalES participates in a debate on the impact of NextGen Funds on Spain’s competitiveness


June 23rd, 2022.- The digital media Innovaspain presented yesterday the tenth edition of its Yearbook of Innovation in Spain, which has as its main theme the European recovery funds. During the presentation event, in which DigitalES participated, proposals and inspiring examples of organizations that manage, receive and innovate thanks to these grants were discussed. It was thus clear that Next Generation EU funds are already beginning to be translated into projects and actions at all levels of the Spanish economy.

Likewise, ideas were shared on the potential tractor effect that local administrations and innovative startups have on the economic fabric of our country as a whole. Among the first, the cases of Malaga and Alcobendas were presented as reference cities in the management of European funds for the modernization of public services. Among the latter, we learned about the cases of EUROCYBCAR, which has developed a methodology to certify the cybersecurity of vehicles; and Bread Free, which has created the first wheat flour suitable for coeliacs. Both were founded just a few years ago and, thanks to European funds, have managed to continue innovating and advancing as companies.

The Innovation Yearbook, which can be downloaded here, gives a voice to public institutions, large companies, startups and different initiatives in order to know what they consist of and how the Recovery, Transformation and Resilience Plan will affect the future of Spanish society.
