3. Assessing the technical and financial feasibility of proposals for constructing fabrication plants and fabless in Spain

4. Preparing and coordinating the state aid notification processes that may be developed in the framework of the European Chips Act. Also to elaborate and coordinate fast-track processes related to the planning, construction and operation of foundries that may arise under the Act.
