The Valencian researchers learned in detail the evaluation procedures, metrics and lines of work used for the formulation and application of projects for non-reimbursable funds co-financed by ProInnovate in La Libertad. In this way, applied research projects that are developed in a clear way between UCV and the company, through initiatives such as Vue, can receive funding that allows them to increase the technological maturity of these initiatives and through innovation. Close the gaps that limit competition in the productive sector.
“This initiative brings together UCV as well as other universities in La Libertad, seeking to link the academy with the business sector of the region, the driving sector of our economy.

“We believe that the ProInnovate proposal is a timely and relevant strategy, as it will allow our researchers to know the needs of the productive sector, and research processes can be implemented in response to its challenges. From the point of view of student training , this will allow us to strengthen our lines of research and the thesis processes can be applied to the reality of productive sectors”, highlighted Soto Deza.
The director of UCV’s Institute for Research in Science and Technology said that research projects carried out by students of his institute can also participate in competitions to get funding for their implementation in collaboration with a private company.
