The University and the Council of Salamanca renew their commitment to technological innovation at “Salamaq”.

The University of Salamanca and the Town Council have been collaborating since 2015 to promote innovation and technological development in the primary sector. The research projects that have already been applied to agriculture and livestock in Castile and Leon with success, are well known and have their origin in our University.

Yesterday I signed two agreements with the President of the Council, Javier Iglesias, in which we reaffirm our commitment to transferring knowledge to the main sector of our local economy. Thanks to the first agreement, the University of Salamanca will have its own stand, located in the central Pavilion of the Salamaq Fairground, equipped with all the necessary tools and used as a space for the dissemination of research.

The second agreement, signed with the Science Park Foundation of the USAL, will allow the participation of the Park’s companies that are interested in showcasing their products and services in the agricultural and livestock sector. They will also be provided with a space for this purpose.

These agreements are fundamental if we are to move forward, since in this way new projects will be more far-reaching and will have a greater impact on our society.
