32 32 MAIN CONCLUSIONS DERIVED FROM PRE- ANDALUSIA

33 33 MAIN CONCLUSIONS DERIVED FROM PRE- ANDALUSIA Difficulty to obtain precise knowledge on the existing promotion instruments Difficulty to manage the large amount of information Even some of the leading firms represented at the platform did not know almost 50% of the instruments included in the regional inventory Administrative management becomes an additional burden All the stakeholders represented at PRE agreed on

34 34 MAIN CONCLUSIONS DERIVED FROM PRE- ANDALUSIA To reinforce the dissemination of information by public administrations and private agents, such as business associations. To coordinate and simplify information mechanisms, as well as to increase the resources allocated to information and dissemination of existing instruments. With regards to these barriers and difficulties, PRE-ANDALUCIA members point out that an important achievement would be: establishing a visible and clearly defined agent to be addressed for all questions on instruments and proceeding Our needs…

35 35 MAIN CONCLUSIONS DERIVED FROM PRE- ANDALUSIA Instruments or economic resources allocated to the experimentation and pilot plant construction stages are insufficient (from a business perspective the instruments supporting just the initial innovation and development stages are not sufficient) Signals in prices by means of economic grants or subsidies are still necessary Firms represented at PRE declared that:
