Reflecting on the impact that digital transformation is having on certain aspects of society, as well as reinforcing the commitment of technology companies in Cantabria when it comes to facilitating digitalization processes for the most vulnerable groups, are the two fundamental premises that underpin the ‘Digital Transformation from a humanistic vision’ conference. More than a hundred people have already confirmed their attendance at an event, which will take place next Monday, May 27, starting at 9:00 a.m. at the Palacio de la Magdalena.

The program includes four round tables and a keynote presentation, which will address the impact of technology on matters such as the gender gap, rural development, family relationships, the technological isolation of the elderly or the efficiency of Public Administration.

Thus, there will be a debate about why only 19.4% of the total ICT specialists in Spain are women; or what are the main concerns of families given the growing relationship of young people with digital environments; or what type of campaigns must be launched so that older people do not lose rights in the face of the inexorable advance of digitalization.

With the purpose of bringing together in the same space both the main digital challenges in the medium term and who can help solve them, the forum will feature around twenty professionals who are experts in different subjects. Carlos San Juan, a retired Valencian promoter of the ‘I’m older, not an idiot’ campaign, will be the only speaker who will speak via video conference. Likewise, the institutional opening is expected to be carried out by Pilar Alegría, Minister of Education, Vocational Training and Sports of the Government of Spain; Mª José Sáenz de Buruaga, president of the Government of Cantabria; and Gema Igual, mayor of Santander.

The support of the National Cybersecurity Institute (INCIBE), Caja Rural de Asturias, the Cantabrian Chamber of Commerce, the Santander City Council and Santander Destino have made this day possible, which constitutes the main event of the commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the Tera Cluster . Since its constitution in 2019, the organization that brings together Cantabria’s technology companies has established itself as the main promoter of the Digital Agenda in the region. Likewise, in its efforts to generate continuous business opportunities for its associates, it has established sectoral commissions to promote digitalization in areas such as Health, Industry or Education.

Thanks to a vocation for constant collaboration, confirmed in more than 300 meetings and work meetings, the Tera Cluster has achieved the majority support of a critical sector for the economic and social development of Cantabria in the medium and long term. 75 companies and organizations are already part of this sector group that efficiently plays the role of facilitator so that technology is never an obstacle.
