ICTS, European Regional Development Fund

The European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) is a financial instrument of the European Commission whose purpose is to strengthen economic and social cohesion in the European Union by correcting the imbalances between its regions.
The operational programs are the programming documents approved by the European Commission to develop and specify the development strategies to co-finance with the European Funds.
The Ministry of Economy, Industry and Competitiveness, through the General Secretariat for Science and Innovation, manages funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) for the Plurirregional Operational Program of Spain (POPE)2014-2020, in the action line: “Singular Scientific and Technical Infrastructures” to finance projects and actions related to implementation, expansion or improvement of large international scientific and technological infrastructures in which Spain participates.

In this framework, several projects related to the ICTS NANBIOSIS have been selected by the MINECO for co-financing with FEDER funds of the European Regional Development Funds program.

Our group is involved as U4- Biodeposition and biosensing of the Project FICTS-1420-27
