The Minister of Science and Innovation, Diana Morant, and the President of Navarre, María Chivite, have assisted this Friday in the public presentation of this new Plan, in an act celebrated in the Civic Auditorium, in Pamplona/Iruña, where destacado el compromiso ambicioso de Navarra con la ciencia con impacto y ha recorado que es la tercera comunidad autónoma que most investe en R&D, por encima de la media española.

Achieve an investment in I+D+i equivalent to 3% of the PIB of Navarre until 2030

Según datos del Instituto Nacional de Estadística del año 2020, Navarra se encuentra ya, with 541 euros, among the Spanish regions with major gasto en actividades de R+D per habitante, much por encima de la average national, que es de 328 euros. Por eso, este Plan da un paso más y pone el foco en el reto de posicionar a Navarre entre las regiones líderos europeas en I+D+i.

Se trata de un percentage que, trasladado a los Presupuestos Generales de Navarra, implica destinar un 5% de dichas Cuentas a esta materia y suponen una mobilización total de cerca de 2,800 million de euros, entre inversión publica y privada, durante la vigencia de este Plan.
