We collaborate with public administrations to promote innovation and assist companies in integrating innovation into their overall strategy through planning, the analysis and evaluation of projects, programmes, plans, strategies, R&I policies, innovations, technologies, industry and entrepreneurship.
How do we carry out studies and diagnostics for public administrations?
Through extensive planning, we design regional technology plans, or RIS3: we draw up the plan, evaluate the results or impacts, as well as the strategy design process. We monitor indicators of the regional Technology Plan, or RIS3, natural resources (mining) or other sectoral technology plans (agri-food, automotive, etc.). We are also a key partner in digitalisation, both in the preparation of digitalisation diagnostics in Navarra (Spain) and in the preparation of more complex documents, such as the region’s Digital 2030 strategy.
Zabala Innovation also participates in analysing practices, strategies, policies, programmes and calls for proposals for public entities; both in the field of Innovation (preparing studies on tools in other countries/regions or benchmarking other regional calls for proposals: in sectors, themes, new instruments); and at a European level (DG Growth (2010-2016) RIM (REGIONAL INNOVATION MONITORING); DG Regio (2012-2013) RIS3; DG R&D (2015-2017); DG REGIO (2015 – 2018)).
We also help administrations evaluate projects within the framework of actions promoted by public entities.
If anything sets Zabala Innovation apart, it is our management of networks and projects. We manage networks, initiatives, projects and public programmes (including CPI); knowledge exchange platforms and networks; open calls and public programmes; development plans (innovation, proactive promotion of innovative proposals and the management of emerging projects in specific sectors or regions); cascade funding calls and the acceleration of start-ups.
Once the R&I Plan has been developed, at Zabala Innovation, we collaborate with the development and promotion of R&I, through the participation of client entities in international funding programmes and the dissemination and communication of projects and programmes. We help draft development and funding plans for regions and specific areas; we bring R&I closer to the market through the commercial exploitation of results and we manage permanent forums that promote European values in specific regions.
