The implementation of the service in innovation support for companies is to promote and increase their competitiveness. The project will support specific companies and analyze both their needs of innovation as well as their long term business vision. Based on this analysis, the aim is to get to know the innovation projects the companies would have to undertake, providing the company with the support required to set up the project, identifying potential collaborators (research centers, other companies. etc.) and also any public subsidies or grants for the development of the projects. The goal is also to inform the companies of the new developments in R&D in the field of transport and logistics and in addition, to define a program to support the setting up of innovative, knowledge-based companies. The general goal is to establish the foundations to develop an innovative culture in Aragon companies within the logistics sector in such a way that they can develop their technology capacity and vitality in the long term.
