Vaciero allies with Zabala Innovation to advise on European funds

Vaciero and Zabala Innovation have joined forces to advise companies on European funds of ‘Next Generation EU’

The legal and financial services firm and the innovation consultancy firm have signed a collaboration agreement for the joint provision of advice to companies in the framework of the implementation of European funds of the Next Generation EU programme.

Vaciero and Zabala Innovation have sealed an alliance to help Asturian companies to identify, select and manage projects to be financed by the European Fund for Recovery, Transformation and Resilience. The two companies agree to start a joint collaboration, in which each entity will provide its expertise in legal and financial advice, on the one hand, and, on the other hand, in consulting on innovation and R+D+i to companies.

The agreement is framed in a current moment in which the different administrations involved are arbitraging various aid programmes aimed at projects of public and private entities that serve as a stimulus to economic activity through the European Next Generation EU funds. Likewise, the two entities will develop joint dissemination events at national level on current issues at all times, especially regarding funding for projects aligned with the Next Generation EU programme.

Ricardo San Marcos (pictured left), managing partner of Vaciero, said: “The implementation of European funds is a lifeline for many companies that are in a critical situation. With this collaboration agreement, we want to offer a comprehensive legal-financial response to any company that identifies whether its business project is eligible for funding or subsidies and, where appropriate, help them to obtain such aid.”

Erik Zabala (pictured right), CEO of Zabala Innovation, stated: “There is still time to apply for grants for our projects taking advantage of European funds, but it is important to be well informed about the new developments and the calls for proposals that will be published shortly. We recommend that companies identify and work on the investment and R&D projects they plan to undertake.”
