This PERTE concerns the creation of a public-private investment vehicle to develop advanced, innovative and/or emerging medicines, therapies and/or technologies. The goal is to favour the deployment of the technical and industrial capacities necessary to generate a high-performance healthcare system intended to protect health by providing an immediate and flexible response to healthcare challenges and favouring sustainability.

The share capital of this new entity will be 49% held by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities through the company Innvierte, while Insud Pharma and ROVI will hold 25.5% each. The shareholders undertake to make an initial combined contribution of 74,867,346.94 euros. Further investment will be made in accordance with the needs of the projects defined in the future and will be subject to the shareholders’ approval of the relevant business plan. Such investment could reach 220 million euros, which would be contributed by the public and private investors that are participating.

It is planned that Innvierte’s contributions could be made with European “Next Generation EU” funds, which include the EU Recovery and Resilience Facility established in Regulation (EU) 2921/241 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 February 2021.   

Juan López-Belmonte, Chairman and CEO of ROVI, highlights the fact that this agreement “represents an opportunity to help place Spain in a leading position in the clinical research of new therapies, with the capacity to translate this research into manufacturing and thus improve the availability of new therapies to patients. At ROVI, we are delighted to place our knowledge and experience at the service of this great public-private alliance that reinforces our commitment to innovation”.
