Crea & TIC, a project to incorporate innovation into local businesses through disruptive technologies

Vilanova i la Geltrú and Neàpolis City Councils have launched Crea & TIC, a project to incorporate innovation and disruptive technologies into local companies and generate technological talent. This proposal has received a grant from the Diputació de Barcelona, within the program “Work, Talent and Technology”, and will involve an investment of € 163,098 in two years.

The Councilor for Business and Innovation, Conxi Martínez, explained that the project aims to “detect the state of technological innovation in the city and find agents willing to train in disruptive technologies” . The City Council will promote strategic alliances with interested agents and offer specialized training both to update knowledge and to acquire new skills. These learnings will focus on augmented reality and 5G, but will also include other technologies such as big data, blockchain, 3D or artificial intelligence (AI).

Ultimately, the aim is to improve the digitalisation of the business fabric and create new job opportunities. For this reason, Crea & TIC aligns with municipal actions for the recovery of the labor market and the generation of new economic opportunities through the Shock Plan and the Economic and Social Recovery Plan (PRES).

The project was presented as part of the visit of the Mayor and Councilor for Innovation to Spotlio , a company specializing in technological platforms for tourist destinations.
