Cluster SIVI was present on 27th November at the Miguel Delibes Cultural Centre in Valladolid at the presentation of the HUB Health Research and Innovation of Castilla y León, an important meeting in which the region shows its muscle as a community that promotes scientific and technological excellence through collaborative networks, catalysing synergies between the public and private sector and publicising cutting-edge proposals in the field of health.
Through this initiative, Castilla y León aims to contribute to the improvement of the health and welfare of citizens, positioning itself as a promoter of scientific and technological excellence, creating collaborative networks, acting as a catalyst for synergies between the public and private sectors and publicising cutting-edge proposals in the field of health.
During the event, the new Strategic Plan for Health Research and Innovation in Castilla y León, 2023- 2027 was presented, which aims to position the region as an example of commitment and leadership in the transfer of knowledge and results in health. The President of the Castilla y León Government, Alfonso Fernández Mañueco, presented the plan “to make it a meeting point for professionals and a lever for transforming the region’s health, production and social model”.
Fernández Mañueco highlighted Castilla y León’s outstanding position in the bio-health-biotechnology sector, underlining its excellence in pharmaceutical research and innovation, digital technology, genomics and advanced therapies. This strength, according to the president, is due to the region’s exceptional healthcare system and the presence of numerous leading companies with significant potential.
In line with this, the regional government is committed to supporting companies in the sector, encouraging investment and the development of projects. Public-private collaboration will be promoted, seeking the direct benefit of patients, who will benefit from pioneering treatments in safe experimental phases, more clinical trials and better clinical practice guidelines.
President Fernández Mañueco visited the SIVI Cluster stand and took an interest in the different initiatives developed by the cluster and its members, recalling his visit to FITECU (1st International Care Fair), held last February in Villardeciervos (Zamora, Spain), which he attended for its inauguration.
