The CDTI is governed by private law in its relations with third parties. This allows it to offer companies agility and flexibility in their services to support the development of R&D business projects, the international exploitation of technologies developed by the company and the realization of offers for technological-industrial supplies to scientific and technological organizations. Consequently, the CDTI grants the company its own financial aid and facilitates access to that of third parties (Grants from the EU R&D Framework Programme, for example) for the implementation of both national and international research and development projects. It also provides support to the company to develop in international cooperation, for which it offers aid to innovation and technology transfer projects, its external network and multilateral cooperation projects (Eureka and Iberoeka) and bilateral with Canada, Japan, China, South Korea, India and South Africa. Additionally, the CDTI has been empowered as the competent body to issue binding reasoned reports on the projects to which it has granted aid in any of its lines (Royal Decree 2/2007). These documents will provide Spanish companies that have an approved project and with public aid granted by the CDTI greater legal certainty when obtaining tax relief for the expenses incurred in the R&D activities of these projects. Finally, the CDTI manages and supports the achievement, by Spanish companies, of industrial contracts of high technological content generated by different national and European organizations, such as the European Space Agency (ESA), the European Laboratory for Particle Physics (CERN), the European Synchrotron (ESRF), Hispasat and Eumetsat.
