Get to know the EMBRAPII Priority Program (PPI)
EMBRAPII is accredited by the Information Technology Area Committee (CATI) as coordinator of the Priority Program (PPI) in IoT/Manufacturing 4.0. This is an additional mechanism for companies benefiting from the IT Law (Act No. 8,248/1991) to comply with the legal responsibilities of investing in Research, Development and Innovation (RD&I) activities.
The Program allows the company to deposit the amount of technological activities in the PPI and, in doing so, comply with the obligation to obtain the tax benefit provided for in the Law.
Advantages of providing PPI to companies:
- Agility, ease and zero bureaucracy
- Ability to track how the resource is being used
From April 2020, all percentages of external and internal R&D expenditures can also be contributed in the IoT/Manufacturing 4.0 PPI, including investments from the regions of influence of Sudam (North), Sudene (Northeast) and the Midwest. With the revision of the Law, the PPI is also able to receive quarterly contributions to the National Fund of Science and Technology Development (FNDCT).
The funds contributed are used to strengthen RD&I activities in the areas that make up the program: IoT and Manufacturing 4.0.
Innovative companies that have a technological demand and that need support can look for EMBRAPII Units that work in these areas to contract RD&I projects in an agile and simplified way.
