In the field of research and innovation, consortia and strategic alliances play an important role in helping to deal with any difficulties that arise in setting up or managing new projects. We need practical information, practice, and case studies described by experienced players who deal with this kind of topic and problems on a daily basis.


For this reason, we have make accessible the ebook “Consorcios y alianzas estratégicas en el ámbito de la investigación y la innovación: casos y buenas prácticas” with the guidance of the Fundació Parc Científic Universitat de València (FPCUV). The ebook focuses on the analysis of distinct cases and direct experiences from the authors, gathering valuable knowledge about strategies, markets, and actions that have produced long term results.
