The “Safor Salutt” cooperation program, a joint initiative between FISABIOGandia Health Department, FISABIHACLE La Pedrera, Campus Gandia Campus of the Universitat Politècnica de València (UPV) and the Federation of Business Associations of La Safor (FAES), is gearing up for its first conference of 2021, which is set to take place on Thursday, May 27, from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m., through the online platform Zoom.

The aim of the conference is to present the Safor Salut work plan for the year 2021, whose primary novelty is the incorporation of social agents as an active part of the innovation system. “The incorporation of the patient associations in La Safor, the Gandia City Council and the Mancomunitat de Municipis de la Safor to the innovative process of the project will promote and strengthen research cooperation between the industrial, technological, healthcare and social fabric in the area of La Safor and its surroundings for the development of innovative products and services that will provide solutions to real challenges,” according to the Safor Salut technical team.

Information will be provided during the event to promote the incorporation of the social axis into the program, as well as to encourage the detection of health and social challenges and participation in projects from the idea conception phase to its development.

Likewise, in order to leverage the synergies between innovation agents, experiences will be provided of real application projects in the healthcare field to serve as inspiring examples for the proposal of new collaborative research projects between agents. The conference will feature campus researcher, Teresa Sebastiá, and the researcher from Fisabio, Carmen Barona, who will present the project: Study of the relationship between green urban development and public health as an example of a city project.
