XXIII International Symposium of Cryptogamic Botany

Site location 


The University-Enterprise Foundation of the University of Valencia (ADEIT) is an organization, with its own legal personality, promoted by the Consell Social of the University of Valencia in 1989, whose objective is, on the one hand, that companies take advantage of the capacities of the University, and on the other hand, to serve as a channel to transmit to the University the needs of companies and the productive sectors. With this aim, ADEIT promotes the development of joint activities in all those fields that favor the exchange of know-how and, as a consequence, the enhancement of economic progress.
