Spain to highlight technological innovations
Spain’s Secretary General of the Sea this week announced a new initiative, “Bulletin of Technological Surveillance for Fishing,” with the objective of bringing to light technological innovations to improve the competitiveness of the country’s fishing and aquaculture industries.
The bulletin will feature a review of recently incorporated patents relevant to the industries, in addition to news on technological innovations.
Among Spain’s priorities is developing a system capable of providing real-time information for the marine aquaculture industry. Execution of the new system has been entrusted to the Observatory for Industrial Technology Foresight in Madrid (the OPTI Foundation), with help from the AINIA Technological Institute in Valencia, the CETMAR Technological Center Sea Foundation in Vigo, the Spanish Office of Patents and Trade Marks, and intellectual property agency Clarke, Modet & Co. in Madrid.
The bulletin will be produced twice a year by the Office for the Promotion and Dynamism of Research, Development and Innovation in the Aquatic and Fishing Sectors (PESCAPLUS) and promoted by the Secretary General of the Sea.
