Support with the marketing of innovative products

Techtera supports companies in marketing innovative products/services/processes through operational procedures focused on customer needs. This offer is based on a targeted field approach, which also makes it possible to diversify the portfolio.

Techtera is accredited for the Innovation Tax Credit

In order to strengthen its support in this procedure, Techtera has obtained approval from the Ministry of the Economy, Industry and Digital Technology as an entity eligible for the Innovation Tax Credit. This approval makes it possible to integrate support into the eligible expenses of companies carrying out design work for prototypes or pilot installations for new products. They will thus be able to benefit from a tax credit of 20% of the expenses incurred, capped at €400,000.
