Incentives for hiring research staff
ACCIÓ – Passeig de Gràcia, 129 – 08008 Barcelona, Conference Hall
9 March 2016
The purpose of this symposium is to explain the various tools available that facilitate the incorporation of qualified staff in companies to undertake R&D&I.
The Industrial Doctorates Plan, for instance, simplifies the search for highly qualified professionals to undertake research projects of interest to companies.
To reduce the costs associated with research projects, companies may benefit from tax deductions. Even SMEs with the PYME INNOVADORA seal may combine it with a reduction on social security payments and enjoy other advantages, which will be covered at the symposium.
Topics to be covered:
- The main features of the Industrial Doctorates Plan
- How to materialise the tax benefit associated with research projects, specifically the bases for applying reductions in social security payments. Compatibility criteria between the two types of incentive
- Requirements, benefits and means of obtaining the PYME INNOVADORA seal.
- ACCIÓ's accompanying programme for the application of tax incentives for innovation.
