What is a PECT project?
PECT projects evolve around innovation and territorial smart specialisation. They are co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) Operative Program of Catalonia 2014-2020 and respond to the desire to organise and bring together the elements that are decisive for the economic development of a territory, in line with the European strategy of Research and Innovation for Smart Specialisation (RIS3) and the corresponding Catalan strategy RIS3CAT. PECTs integrate initiatives articulated and promoted from the local level with a strong innovative component for the economic transformation of the territory and for the generation of sustainable economic activity and employment.
