The National Plan for Scientific Research, Development and Technological Innovation (R&D&I), as it appears in the Law on Science, is the programming instrument for the Spanish System of Science and Technology in which the medium-term objectives and priorities of science and technology policy are established. Various areas for strategic actions have been established, including in the field of Energy and Climate Change. Other priorities for strategic action are Health, Biotechnology, Telecommunications and Information, Society, Nanoscience and nanotechnology, New materials and new industrial processes. The Plan seeks to fund RD&D activities in specific programmes that will support sustainable energy production, including greater use of renewable energy, emerging clean combusion, and improved energy efficiency. Programmes on sustainable mobility and modal change in transportation will also be supported. Further, the Plan will fund programmes aimed at non-energy related mitigation, climate change research, and adapation. The Plan has been extended until the moment the Government approves the National Plan for Scientific and Technical Research, established by Law 14/2011 of 1st July, of Science, Technology and Innovation.
