CDP Framework Operation #1 for Research and Development


This Framework Operation falls under the RIDW General Debt product covered by the RIDW Policy Window of InvestEU. Its purpose is to provide direct financing to Italian Mid-cap companies to support industrial research and experimental development related to the Green Deal Innovations, Health and Future Technologies solutions, as listed under the Policy Objectives of the relevant financial product. The Framework Operation supports Italian Midcaps to bring their innovations to the market, especially, when the development of a new technology is years away from commercialization and it may require public support to share the technological and demonstration risks involved. CDP expects significant impact from these interventions, contributing to addressing cross-cutting challenges such as climate change, promoting technological innovation, and improving population health conditions. Some examples of interventions under these sub-projects could include the development of new disease treatments and research and development of new tools to support the health sector.
