The State Research Agency has published the call for research projects in Public-Private Collaboration, which is part of the State Plan for Scientific, Technical and Innovation Research 2021-2023 and included in the EU Recovery and Resilience Mechanism (Recovery Plan). The deadline for submitting proposals is March 7, 2023. These projects are an opportunity to develop technologies in collaboration with companies and therefore to generate impact. During the coffee, the main characteristics of the call will be discussed and, in particular, the important novelties of this year's edition, to be taken into account for the preparation of proposals.

This coffee talk will be given in Spanish.
