Located on the Mediterranean coast of the Iberian Peninsula, our Valencian Centre is active in a region composed of three provinces: Castellón, Valencia and Alicante, with a total coastal longitude of 518 km.
The region has five millions inhabitants, whereas the entire Valencian region accounts for 10.8 per cent of the total Spanish population. Its main city, Valencia, is the third largest city in Spain.
Of particular interest to the Regional Centre are:
- water technologies,
- sustainable construction and sustainable mobility in cities,
- climate science in the Mediterranean Basin, and
- zero-carbon production systems in traditional industries such as ceramics, textile, metal-mechanic, automotive and others.
The activities of our Valencian region are coordinated by the Fundación Comunidad Valenciana-Región Europea (FCVRE) and the Valencian Institute of Business Competitiveness (IVACE) of the Regional Ministry of Economy, Industry, Tourism and Employment.
