Science parks are key in the horizon of reconstruction, which will only be possible if science and the relationship between research and business are taken into account. This was stated by Carmen Beviá, Autonomic Secretary of Universities and Innovation of the Generalitat Valenciana during her visit to the Science Park of the University of Valencia (PCUV), of which she highlighted as "great value" the proximity of the scientific institutes, the university and the companies for the generation of talent. The meeting was attended by Juan José Borrás, director of the PCUV; Rosa Donat, vice-rector for Transfer and Innovation at the University of Valencia; and Fernando M.ª Zárraga, manager of the Fundació Parc Científic Univeristat de València (FPCUV).
"The PCUV is a very dynamic science park, with incredible potential and with contracting that is highly concentrated in biotechnology and ICTs and very high in terms of productivity. This is important to ensure that our business fabric grows in productivity in the Valencian Community", stressed the Autonomous Secretary of Innovation.

To find out about the progress, challenges and opportunities of companies in the innovation environment of the PCUV, Beviá visited two of the largest companies in the Parc, ADM-Biopolis and Analog Devices. Our objective is to try to improve our call for science parks and the best way to do it is to get to know the science park from within, to know how they work and what their needs are in order to adapt it to this call for grants.
"They are two very representative examples of what the park is, one as a biotechnology company and the other as an ICT company, and both have a lot of potential, they are large, with a large number of employees, and they have expansion needs. given the impression that this is a bit where the Parc wants to move", observed Beviá.
