The Valencian Innovation System (SVI) includes universities and centres for advanced research; technology institutes; health research centres, financial institutions and venture capital funds; Public Administrations and the entire business fabric of the Comunitat Valenciana.
The strength of the Innovation Systems depends not only on its components being individually robust, but also on the ability to relate to each other.
Actually, investing in R&D is not enough to guarantee that companies will integrate the technology and the innovations.
The Innovation System must be efficient, that is, the connections between the different components must work smoothly. Without strong interconnecting elements, the gap between each other may become too large to bridge.
