They can be exchanged for one of the following services:
- Industry 4.0 diagnosis coupon: a diagnosis that allows the identification of improvement opportunities that help companies to incorporate new technologies and make a strategic, organisational and cultural change towards industry 4.0 by establishing transformation plans.
Maximum aid: 8,000 euros.
- Industry 4.0 implementation coupon: integration and testing of technologies from industry 4.0, carrying out pilot tests and access to technological infrastructures, facilities or unique architectures.
Maximum aid of 20,000 euros.
Projects supported may be implemented until 30 November 2021. The beneficiary company may receive up to a maximum of two vouchers, provided that one of them is the Industrial Property Voucher or the Tax Voucher (within the Innovation and Strategy Vouchers).
From Geprom, as a supplier company accredited by ACCIÓ, we help you to accelerate your industrial projects and take advantage of this excellent opportunity, both from the point of view of diagnosis and the implementation of a pilot test.
