Training days on Public Purchase of Innovation
The Congress Centre of the technological Park hosted last month the Training Days on Public Purchase of Innovation organised within the Canarias Geo Innovation Program 2030. The island councillor for the Environment, Flight Against the Climate Change, Circular Economy and Innovation and Development, Marlene Figueroa, expressed her thanks to the participants for this training days that “are an opportunity to understand what it means to use the tool of the Public Purchase of Innovation but also to discover how we can transform initiatives that are usually developed by the Administration for great opportunities for the territory, businesses and technological centres”. Furthermore, she added that “Fuerteventura's Cabildo believes that the Technological Park must generate true opportunities for local businesses where innovation is a fundamental tool for the development and improvement of competitiveness of the territory”. The director of the Technological Park, Eduardo Pereira, was also present, as well as the director of Science & Innovation Link Office, expert COTEC in Public Purchase of Innovation and ex-general director of the Gallega Agency of Innovation (GAIN), Manuel Varela, who animated the training days and was warmly thanked, as was the collaboration of the Island's Cabildo and the Technological Park for organising this initiative “as emerging instrument in the public and private sectors”.
