Corporación Tecnológica de Andalucía / CTA
CTA is a public-private partnership made up of more than 165 companies to promote innovation and technology transfer.
Biotechnology has the capacity to have a leverage effect on other economic sectors as a catalyst for innovation, and can therefore increase their competitiveness. According to a report by the OECD, the application of biotechnology to primary production, health and industry could lead to the emergence of a bioeconomy which would make a considerable contribution to economic activity as a whole.
The bioeconomy is fundamental in helping to confront the challenges facing a society which is progressively growing and ageing whilst the essential resources for its maintenance and progress are limited.
CTA Biotech is made up of representatives of the triple helix:
