Digital District  and the  European Union Intellectual Property Office (Euipo), based in Alicante, have met with the aim of promoting actions that favor the strengthening of the technological productive fabric of the territory.

A delegation from Euipo visited our headquarters in Agua Amarga this Thursday to take a tour of the facilities and hold a working meeting that has been “very productive” for both parties.

Participating in this meeting on behalf of the Digital District were the general director of the Society for Thematic Projects of the Valencian Community (SPTCV) and CEO of the Digital District, Antonio Rodes, and the deputy director of the SPTCV Rufino Selva, as well as the coordinator of Digital District Ezequiel Sánchez and the Director of Communication of the Digital District, Mayte Vañó.

On behalf of the Euipo, a delegation made up of representatives from the Human Resources, Academy and Digital Transformation departments has taken part.

Antonio Rodes has highlighted “the strategic importance for the Digital District of strengthening ties of collaboration with the Euipo”, an organization that, at present “is the first applicant for innovation in the entire Valencian Community, with an annual budget of 60 million euros for external contracting in technology, 120 computer systems and a total of 59 external suppliers in this field”.

Work table

Both teams have been able to get to know the Euipo and Digital District projects in depth, especially in the fields of training, demand for innovation and attracting talent, among others, and have agreed to create a work table to specify and undertake joint actions that make it possible to take advantage of synergies of common interest to the two organisations.
