Abstract: 

This chapter analyzes the dynamic sectors that have largely contributed to the advancement of the region in terms of innovation by scientific knowledge and competencies. The author is interested in them from the start, current development, and future expansion. The chapter explores the patterns that resulted in a dynamic sector, trying to establish the conditions that make its growth possible through an analysis of the major scientific and technological capability in the Southern Region. In this way the form of relationships which has helped to generate virtuous circles in the competitive sectors of regional economies can be established, as well as discovery of what can be done to improve it. The conditions to actually set up a cluster in Berries are currently inadequate because of the lack of communication between the different "actors." There is a lack of innovation by the producers, lack of information flow relating to the market requirements by the companies, and a lack of effective transfer of knowledge from the public sector and research bodies. These, amongst other factors, affect the competitiveness of the sector.
