Overview

About us

The ICT sector is fundamental in terms of promoting innovation and establishing a productive model which is based on knowledge and human resources and open to global markets, with a high level of technological input and a significant commitment to R&D. It also acts as a catalyst for innovation in other sectors and as a motor for the adoption of new models of production and a key tool for R&D.

ICT is one of the most active sectors in terms of seeking finance from the CTA for R&D projects. It is a strategic area thanks to its transverse nature and its key role for innovation in other sectors, and in fact, almost 50% of the ICT projects financed by the CTA involve the application of this type of technology to other areas of the economy including health, agri-foods, construction, business management, biotechnology, defence, energy and the environment, etc.

CTA ICT is made up of representatives of the triple helix:
