The selection procedure in a nutshell

MecaTech CC’s selection procedure consists of the following three steps:


Letters of intent (an optional but strongly recommended step):

The aim is to give you a first opinion and advice on engineering your project. It does not influence selection.

Preliminary draft:

This document will undergo initial analysis by our international experts. We also urge you to present your project to the Operational Cell and Committee of Experts. A series of recommendations will be sent to you after these bodies meet.

Project form:

This document will be analyzed by our international experts and a date set to present it a second time, this time to the Board of Directors and Committee of Experts. After these presentations, the MecaTech Cluster will select the projects that it will endorse.

Labeling process

Eligibility criteria
