The objective of this channel is to broadcast the activities carried out on the Villamayor Campus.

The Science Park is a place where the R&D activity of the University of Salamanca continually expands. Here, innovative companies are promoted, the transfer of knowledge between the University and the Company is encouraged and technological and scientific development is boosted. Now, we’re launching our own TV channel on YouTube.

Research, entrepreneurship and business networking coexist in this infrastructure which has completed its first ten years in June. With almost 70 companies settled and 900 workers, the Science Park is fully consolidated as one of the main economic engines of Salamanca and its province, also it is at the forefront of knowledge transfer. Its buildings house dozens of entrepreneurs who are looking for a place where they can make their projects come true. Moreover, education is one of the key aspects of the Park. The sessions that are organizes here are aimed at students and University researchers, we give them an opportunity to continue their professional training by promoting innovation, transfer of knowledge and entrepreneurship; this also helps to boost their socio-economic and international visibility.

That is why we want to share with all of you the premiere of the new TV channel, a more dynamic way of showing the work that is carried out daily at the Villamayor Campus.
