Biotechnology has revealed itself in recent years as a truly emerging sector, with a strong strategic component linked to its great capacity to provide innovative solutions in a wide range of areas in both the social and economic spheres.

Alicante Futura is committed to supporting the sector through the creation of a specific cluster, working together with the Alicante Biotechnology Association (AEBA) to generate the necessary conditions for its growth.

Thus, the aim is to attract projects linked to this sector to the city, transforming the city’s land and industrial areas, increasing the supply of municipal facilities suitable for their implementation and developing resources and training programs on demand from biotech companies.

Agri-Food
HUB

Vertical farming is sustainable agriculture for future food.

Alicante Futura works closely with Mercalicante to promote the creation of an Agri-Food Cluster that ensures the implementation of innovation in different stages and areas of the food chain, such as food safety and traceability, logistics and management linked to the achievement of more sustainable processes, compliance with the circular economy or the implementation of technology-based entrepreneurship in local commerce.

In this sense, the reinvention of the Municipal Business Centre in Mercalicante as a true hub of innovation and technology applied to the agri-food sector is proposed.

Government technological innovation (GovTech) is one of the most promising emerging sectors in our society. Alicante Futura is working to position Alicante as a pioneering open laboratory in this country, creating a specific hub that allows, among other things, to link the innovation developed by start-ups, scale-ups and digital SMEs to the challenges of the municipal administration.

Within this area, Alicante Futura proposes, among other initiatives, GovTech dynamization programmes, a specific laboratory linked to the area and a project of training, capacity building and technological re-skilling in the field of new government technologies.

Creative Industries & Innovation
CLUSTER

The United Nations have not hesitated to point out the creative industry, in a broad sense, as a key emerging sector capable of stimulating both the transfer of knowledge and innovation, speeding up the transition of all sectors towards a more up-to-date production model adapted to the needs arising from the current context.

Alicante Futura sponsors the creation of a specific cluster that responds to proven trends within this field, such as the development of video games, the use of technologies such as Augmented Reality or Artificial Intelligence, the recording and broadcasting of podcasts as well as design and development initiatives based on User Experience (UX), among many others.

Traditional Industries & Innovation
CLUSTER

Alicante has a series of sectors traditionally associated with its territory that have acted and must continue to act as true motors of the area’s economy, such as tourism, the water industry, agriculture or the footwear, food or toy industries.

Each and every one of them must, given the current context, undertake a necessary process of digitalization with the aim of achieving a strategic, agile, comprehensive and efficient transformation that prepares them for a progressively demanding, global and interconnected market. A transformation that also presents the challenge of changing the mentality of our traditional companies and sectors, updating, adapting and enriching their culture.
