Applications for the COTEC Innovative SME network and the COTEC-BPI PME Innovation award are open and will continue until the next 10th of December. The first initiative aims to help promote small or medium-sized companies that stand out for their innovative attitude and activity that culminate in creating value for the country.
The companies that become part of the network will count on the cooperation of the COTEC association and the other companies of the SME network with the aim of taking advantage of synergies.
The award, on the other hand, aims to assert itself as a mechanism for the recognition and reward of an SME that has stood out at national level for the same reasons.
The selection of the companies that will integrate the network will be the responsibility of a monitoring committee, created for this purpose. The selection of applications for the prize, in turn, is the responsibility of a jury, also created for this purpose.
It is recalled that the network of innovative SMEs started last year with the invitation of COTEC to 130 companies and the final count of 24 entities, this year. They will also now have to update the information provided at the time of the application, says a statement. The first edition of the award was also held this year and had Chipidea as the winning company.
