The Japan Patent Office visits the Technology Park of Andalucia


Last March, seven members of the Japanese Patent Office (JPO) of the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) of the Japanese Government visited the Technology Park of Andalucia-PTA, in Spain, to grasp the trend of innovation in PTA and the science parks around the world.

The Technology Park of Andalucia is a high-quality location in which are set SMEs and large businesses that are innovative, respectful of the environment and geared towards manufacturing, advanced services and R+D. Indeed, the interest of JPO focused on knowing such a wide range of efforts from the view of the METI. Also, since the JPO has undertaken some initiatives to respond to the Fourth Industrial Revolution, they were particularly interested in exchanging opinions on impact of Internet of Things and Artificial Intelligence technology on a cross-sectional basis in terms of technology in particular.

Since a long time ago the Technology Park of Andalucía (PTA) has been working with international markets to foster the development of technological communication and cooperation networks amongst the different entities that comprise it, thereby permitting the transfer of technological knowledge and the promotion of business collaboration in an ever-more international sphere.
