Concept of technological innovation

Technological innovation will be considered the activity whose result is a technological advance in obtaining new products or production processes or substantial improvements to existing ones. New products or processes are considered to be those whose characteristics or applications are substantially different from those that existed previously, from a technological point of view.

This activity will include the materialization of the new products or processes in a plan, scheme or design, the creation of a first non-marketable prototype, initial demonstration projects or pilot projects, including those related with animation and video games and textile samples, from the footwear, tanning, leather goods, toys, furniture and wood industries, provided that they cannot be converted or used for industrial applications or for commercial exploitation.
