Created in 1997, the FAPESP Innovative Research in Small Companies Program (PIPE) supports the execution of scientific and / or technological research in small companies in the State of São Paulo. Meet the FAPESP.
Firstly, FAPESP supports research in science and technology as an instrument to promote technological innovation, promote business development and increase the competitiveness of small companies. After that, it increases the contribution of research to economic and social development.
Likewise, it induces an increase in private investment in technological research and, in addition, it enables companies to associate themselves with researchers from the academic environment in research projects aimed at technological innovation.
In conclusion, it contributes to the formation and development of technological development centers in companies and to the employment of researchers in the corporate job market.
The Finep Innovation Award was created in 1998 to recognize and publicize innovative efforts made by companies, non-profit institutions and individuals, developed in Brazil and already inserted in the domestic or foreign market, in order to make the country competitive and fully developed by through innovation.
Recognition for innovation,
In conclusion, the Finep Award is the most important instrument for stimulating and recognizing innovation in the country. In addition, it has awarded hundreds of companies, institutions and individuals, being responsible for the projection of the winners not only in Brazil, but also abroad. Learn more at Finep.
