Asebio warms about the lack of support for business R&D in Spain
The report Propuestas para incrementar la competitividad del sistema español de I+D+I wants to promote measures that improve the system and serve to create a framework that allows companies in general, and the biotechnology sector in particular, to continue creating social, economic and environmental value.
The Spanish Bioindustry Association (Asebio) presented this week the results of the report Proposals to increase the competitiveness of the Spanish R&D system, written by the consulting firm Ayming.
The successful event featured a panel discussion with experts from the sector who conclude reforms are needed to allow the total R&D&I public budget is executed.
Additionally, the panel presented different proposals of tax instruments that go beyond the usual fiscal incentives and can make R&D a real country commitment which allows the biotechnology sector to continue working to create social, economic and environmental value.
The event, held at COAM, was attended by relevant guests, as the former Spanish Government President José Luis Rodríguez Zapatero and had a wide impact on the media.
