Spanish STI system: Autonomus Regions role

The Spanish Constitution recognises the authority of the Autonomous Regions in regard to various R&D and innovation policies. For example, they are responsible for financing and managing public universities and hospitals, two key factors for generation knowledge in Spain. Similarly, the majority of Autonomous Regions have their own R&D&I and innovation policy, including specific plans and calls for proposals. The STI Act includes mechanisms to coordinate regional and national actions in this area.
