Innovarum launches for the MainstreamBIO project the first call for applications for free technical and business support services for bioeconomy projects in the rural world in Spain. Those selected will have a minimum of 3 meetings within a period of 2 to 6 weeks. In these meetings, they will be advised by the project experts in their service(s) of interest.
Applications can be submitted by individuals (natural or legal persons) or groups of 2 or more partners (natural or legal persons)* with small-scale rural bioeconomy ideas or projects located in Navarre, Aragon or Catalonia (all in Spain).
Although individual applications are accepted, group applications will be more positively valued. In any scenario, only a single application will be necessary (it will be possible to provide the information of all partners involved in a single form).
