The PCUV model
Universitat de València has designed and built a unique Science Park. Parc Cientìfic de la Universitat de València (PCUV or “Universitat de València Science Park”) is a team of people and a complex; both are devoted to innovative enterprises that stress research and development in their respective sectors.
PCUV hosts a great part of UV's researching potential in the form of institutes and research groups, and offers high-performance buildings to university enterprises and other innovative companies.
PCUV's research, development and innovation as well as its scientific capacity, are made available to industry in several ways: enterprise research units are established, enterprise researchers are sent to joint research groups, R&D projects are carried out on demand, common infrastructures and services are used in order to carry out measures, studies, tests or analysis, and, more generally, knowledge, technology and processes are transferred.
Thus, PCUV intends to encourage knowledge generation in various areas coordinating scientific, technological and industrial interests in order to transfer technology to businesses and meet society's demands.
It is, then, an organized suite of resources that operate as a link between science and industry, a place in which companies are fed ideas.
