Spain: Industry sides with science

Organizations of the industry, and associations connected to R+D+i express their support towards research, backing the petition of the Severo Ochoa and María de Maeztu alliance (SOMMa) which advocates in favour of the political class acting to clear the administrative problems currently affecting science in Spain.

SOMMa and the organizations supporting this initiative such as IRB Barcelona, represent close to 6,800 businesses, societies, centres and research units, which give employment to more than 500,000 people in Spain, and have an economic activity equivalent to 10,53 % of the gross domestic product.

The Severo Ochoa Centres and Maria de Maeztu Units Alliance (SOMMa) aims to promote Spanish science of excellence and safeguard its competitiveness

The creation of SOMMa will allow research centres and units to increase their impact, foster cooperation, work as a network, and enrich the R+D system.

SOMMa has presented a document to draw the attention of politicians to current administrative issues that urgently need to be addressed.
