Salamaq is a great showcase where projects from the Scientific Park can be disseminated.

At the agricultural Salamaq Fair, the facilities of the University of Salamanca held various exhibitions related to research work in the primary sector. Displays on a variety of topics could be attended, these included ‘Practical example of employing bio-fertilizers to improve the yield of crops’ and ´Endangered plants and seeds’ organized by Ciale, as well as ‘Collection of seeds from traditional highland and gorge cultivar’, all carried out in the Faculty of Agricultural Sciences, as published in the report of  El Norte de Castilla.

In addition, Quantum, Neathea  y Agrosmart Solutions that are settled in the Scientific Park, have organized permanent displays ‘ Technological solutions for the reduction of costs in the agribusiness sector’ ,’Cosmetics and bio-nutrition with donkey milk’ and ‘Developments for the management of water resources and the optimization of irrigation’, respectively.

Talks, colloquiums and worktables were also a part of our presence at Salamaq. Once more, we demonstrated close collaboration between our institution and the Council of Salamanca, this positively shows our capacity to transfer knowledge to agribusiness, which is an important sector in Castile and Leon.
