The CYTED Forums are meetings between entrepreneurs and Ibero-American researchers in order to address specialized issues related to a specific technology sector. The aim is to stimulate innovation projects, as well as transfer and technological cooperation.

Its objectives are to:

  • Galvanise the incorporation of knowledge into the private and public sectors of Ibero-American countries.
  • Encourage the generation of innovation, transfer and technological cooperation projects, as well as attract national and international funding.
  • Enable and sponsor the sustainability of projects, collaborations and interactions previously established, particularly those financed by CYTED.

The financing of CYTED, up to a maximum of 10.000 euros, includes travel and accommodation expenses only for representatives of Ibero-American corporations, excluding those of the host country.

The proposals will be evaluated by a committee of experts and approved by the General Secretariat. The announcement of the results to those responsible for the proposals will be done via email.

  • Financing and participation of corporations from the host country
  • Guarantee of the visibility of the event
