Boosting activity and knowledge

We support SMEs and entrepreneurs, promote knowledge transfer among companies and the economic and social sectors, and contribute to the relationship between educational, professional and entrepreneurial fields.
Our venues are also social spaces where trade fairs dedicated to the public and many cultural and leisure activities are held.
