Technological Talavera, high-tech incubator for fostering innovation and technology transfer to micro-sized businesses.

Talavera, chosen by INCYDE to be the headquarters of a pioneering technological project in Castilla-La Mancha


The City Council of Talavera de la Reina and the Chamber Institute Foundation for the Creation and Development of Enterprises (INCYDE) have signed a collaboration agreement on Tuesday for the implementation, promotion, and dynamization of the High Technology Incubator for Cybersecurity, Data Intelligence, and Cloud Computing within the project “High Technology Incubator for the promotion of innovation and technology transfer to micro-enterprises.”

Thanks to this agreement, Talavera will host one of the 19 High Technology Incubators in Spain, which are a sign of the “future and projection” of this sector, explained the Mayor of Talavera de la Reina, Tita García Élez, who signed the agreement on behalf of the City Council, along with the Director of FEDER Projects of the INCYDE Foundation, Natalia Vázquez.

The creation of this technological incubator, the first of its kind in the region of Castilla-La Mancha, will involve an investment of 1.5 million euros, of which 1,200,000 euros come from European funds through INCYDE, and it is initially planned to accommodate 40 large projects, as well as other training and dissemination activities.


García Élez emphasized that intensive work has been done to obtain this incubator, which will be physically located in the building of the former Escuelas del Prado, where a comprehensive rehabilitation of the building will be carried out with the subsidy from the INCYDE Foundation and FEDER Funds, and state-of-the-art technological elements will be provided to develop initiatives for micro-enterprises.

The projects will be related to the agri-food sector and, in a transversal way, to other productive sectors, as explained during the signing ceremony on a day that has been described by the Mayor of Talavera as “very important” for the city in pursuit of the “change in the productive model” that is being established, and in which, she said, “the municipal government has been working since the beginning of the term of office.”


“With the addition of this new infrastructure,” the mayor stated, “the circle formed by the talent linked to the UCLM (University of Castilla-La Mancha) and the training cycles offered in the institutes, and the multinational companies that are already operating in the Regional Digital Innovation Center (CRID), will be closed, and this fundamental and essential space for micro-enterprises, small businesses, and entrepreneurs to develop their technological ideas or projects will be added.”

In this sense, the mayor stated that “these micro-enterprises and entrepreneurs will have the opportunity to develop their initiatives and business ideas in a city that has opened its doors to technology,” thanks to the close collaboration with the Ministry, the regional government, and the INCYDE Foundation to grant this project to Talavera, which will be “closely related” to the operations already being developed in the CRID.

“Today we are sowing the seed for the construction of micro-enterprises for the present and the future, for Talavera and for the world, because pioneering projects that will be used worldwide will be developed here,” added Tita García, expressing her “conviction” that this is “the path that will bring great results to the city and the autonomous community.”


Natalia Vázquez has congratulated the City Council of Talavera for the project submitted to this call, which was chosen for the installation of the High Technology Incubator in the city by a Selection Committee that prioritized the proposal from Talavera for the “tractor companies” that will be working with entrepreneurs, such as the 9 multinational companies of the CRID, the internationalization of projects, and the support of financial institutions.

“The proposal was good and reality has exceeded it,” concluded the Projects FEDER Manager of the INCYDE Foundation, whose words were ratified by the Director General of Digital Administration of the Junta de Comunidades de Castilla-La Mancha, Juan Ángel Morejudo, present at the signing ceremony on behalf of the regional government.

Morejudo endorsed the commitment and collaboration of the Government of Castilla-La Mancha with the city of Talavera in this “change of productive model based on knowledge, talent, and technological development that is also aligned with the digital strategy so that any microenterprise or entrepreneur with an idea related to technology can turn their project into profitable and sustainable over time.
