We can connect the previous sentence to any socioeconomic agent in any part of our country. But sometimes we forget elsewhere in the world, the reflections and the goals pursued are the same.

Therefore, it is not strange that they appear from time to time. certain alliances between various regions of various countries work together to develop scientific and innovation ecosystems.

The expression given in quotation marks in the first paragraph is as follows: William Ipanaqué Alama, principal professor at the University of Piuraas it turns out, a region of Peru with similar challenges to any of our autonomies.

This statement was reflected in an article published in July 2021. reflected in the challenges facing the region.

Among these difficulties, information management. In the same article, Professor Ipanaqué warned that “the commitment and interaction of regional and national political leaders is essential, with a strategy that shares a single vision among the main institutions”.

Both regions signed new a cooperation agreement for the definition and management of a governance model in a regional science, technology and innovation ecosystem and the creation of a network of science and technology parks in the Peruvian region.

Willingness and commitment to innovation, research and technology applied to the agri-food industry, rural development or the environment is another of the bridges connecting these two regions.

In this sense, the Peruvian region Piura decided to look for a way to do something in the land of Extremadura. trying to take an example to create a strong ecosystem on the other side of the pond. The network of incubators and information centers in Extremadura will be the model to follow.

It should be noted that the Junta de Extremadura is already established three strong centers in various fields There are others, such as biotechnology, health or artificial intelligence and dedicated to audiovisual and ‘agriculture’.

I’m not even talking about projects that aim to be a reference on environmental issues such as Iberian Energy Storage Research Center projected in Cáceres.

Similar challenges between these regions

In the Peruvian region, curiously, socioeconomic difficulties are very similar, with agriculture, rural development or the environment and climate change as key challenges.

Professor Ipanaqué mentioned “Sectors in general and agro-agribusiness in particular, fisheries, services have been greatly improved by technology.. Through the processing of information that helps predict and manage indicators in real time, productivity, irrigation systems, early warning, management of diseases, pests, good practices, etc. issues can be managed better.”

And he concludes: “Supporting rural sectors, especially within the region, should be one of the priorities that should be given priority. Appropriate programs or tools such as InnoRural”.

Common interests and collaboration. so these are the basics of an agreement initialed a few days ago By Servando García Correa, regional governor of Piura, and Luis Casas, managing director of FUNDECYT-PCTEx.
