Introduction

1 - Scope

The objective of this document is to propose a series of models for good practices, which have been successfully implemented in other regions, and can be used by Companies in their relationships with Universities and in fostering their capacity to innovate. They are aimed at Companies in various sectors with differing profiles, sizes and needs.

 These recommendations can be extrapolated for the Andalusian context and their implementation can be carried out either individually by a single company, or by several Companies which share mutual interests, thus achieving greater impact. Although there has been a clear effort to recognise business as the key player in the implementation of the recommendations, it should not be forgotten that there are also many implications for Universities and Public Administrations. In these cases Companies should play an active role in recommending and supporting the ideas outlined in this document.
