Engineering: a key knowledge for boosting thecompetitiveness of biotechnology-based companies:
PRODINTEC – IntroductionDate created:October 2004. Formed as a private non-profit. Boardcomposed of private companies in Asturias, Universityand Government of the Principality of Asturias.Location:Science and Technology Park of Gijón (Asturias)Delegation in Madrid:Science and Technology Park of Madrid, PC 28760MadridTarjetEnhancing competitiveness of enterprises through the application of technological advances boththeir products and their manufacturingprocesses and management.
The bridge between research & innovationTarjet: the market
