Programme description

Main objectives

The Programme aims to boost economic growth in the Madrid region and contribute to achieving the Europe 2020 targets for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth. EU funding is targeted according to the regional specialization strategy (RIS3CAT) which will concentrate basically on research, development and innovation, as well as ICT. The strategy aims to strengthen the research sector, improve scientific and technological infrastructure, promote research by private companies, and consolidate the transfer of knowledge between enterprises and research centres. A financial instrument will be dedicated entirely to support innovation and research activities by enterprises.

The programme will contribute to improve energy efficiency in the public sector and actions on sustainable urban mobility. Conserving and protecting natural and cultural heritage is a key issue for Madrid's economy, so this will be an objective of the programme as well.

Finally, a particular effort will be made in promoting social inclusion by developing social housing.
