Spanish participation in European projects has notably improved in recent years, contributing to the process of internationalisation of the Spanish economy.

In the 7th Framework Programme 2007-2013, the Spanish entities which participated in energy programme projects have received 170 million euros, which represents a return of 13% on the total programme.

In the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme, from 2005 to date, Spanish businesses have participated in 243 European projects with an associated subvention of 30.5 million euros.


Continuation of these actions within the new HORIZON 2020 programme and contribution to the development of the Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan).
