UCIE agents Ana Isabel Delgado and César Senra have participated  in the innovation events VLC Heath&I and Valencia Digital Summit, held in the city of Valencia.

VLC Health&I Day was an initiative led by Innosalud, Bioval and Innotransfer, in which representatives of the Bio business cluster, universities, science parks and health research centers participated. The aim of the event was to promote innovation and entrepreneurship in the healthcare sector, connecting research groups, companies and investors to foster synergies and promote new projects.

The conference, held in the new Biohub building in the Marina of Valencia, began with an assessment of the impact of the tools to promote innovation in the Valencian Region by representatives of the AVI, Generalitat, RUVID and BioVal. In parallel, there were networking sessions, talks on entrepreneurship and investment in the Bio sector, presentation of challenges and solutions by institutions and companies in the sector. In addition, there was a competition in which ten Valencian startups in the health sector presented their projects to different investment funds.

On the other hand, the Ciutat de les Arts y les Ciències was the chosen venue for the Valencia Digital Summit, now in its fifth edition, which places Valencia as a benchmark in technological innovation.

This new edition of the VDS, organized by STARTUP VALENCIA, brought together more than 12,000 attendees from 35 different countries, more than 400 national and international investors and 450 world-renowned speakers, around 1,500 startups, and more than 130 sessions on various topics such as sustainability, blockchain technology, smart cities, talent acquisition and collaboration between companies and startups.

With this initiative,it seeks to boost innovative companies in the Valencian ecosystem so that their projects consolidate, scale and contribute to inspire a better future.

On this occasion, IFIC was also represented by the researcher Luis Caballero, who presented the project he leads in the showroom of the event, within the framework of the COMTE-Innovation program in which it participates.

The presence of the agents in these events allows us to keep abreast of the main lines of work and identify relevant actors in the fields of health, biotechnology and digital technology. Likewise, we have been able to establish contacts with some startups that have shown interest in IFIC’s activity and are expected to lead to future collaborations.
