The Tera Cluster consolidates its position as a catalyst agent for the main business opportunities linked to the ICT sector in the region. Its extensive knowledge of both the capabilities of technology companies and the main needs of the different Administrations have made this group one of the main engines for the generation of new projects in Cantabria.

This was made clear at the ordinary general assembly of the Association, held recently at the Hotel Palacio del Mar. Fifty members participated in this meeting, the second of this year, in which it was confirmed that, thanks to Due to their specialization and experience, the members of the Tera Cluster can successfully respond to any technological need raised by the productive sector.

The constant growth of Cluster members only reaffirms this approach. At the assembly held at the Palacio del Mar, the accession of the companies NWorld, Menntun, Ultravirtus, Bizzai, Digital Twins and Psicoacademy was made official. In addition, FIDBAN has joined the list of strategic collaborators of the group. In total, Tera already has 62 companies and entities from Cantabria.

One of the fundamental aspects of being able to encourage new business avenues is to offer tailored solutions for the different challenges posed by both the private sector and the public sector. Given this circumstance, Tera is committed to promoting the creation of different commissions or working groups that thoroughly analyze the casuistry of each sector and propose projects with high added value.

After the creation of the Digital Health Commission, Tera intends to replicate this successful formula in other sectors such as industry, education or culture. In this regard, the priority for action will be established by the associates themselves in a consultation that will be held in the coming weeks.

The general assembly of the Tera Cluster had the participation of Javier Puente. The general director of Innovation of the Government of Cantabria listened carefully to all the planned actions and invited the technology companies in the region to collaborate to guarantee the future of the region. “Innovation and technology are essential both to attract organizations to our ecosystem and to increase the productivity and competitiveness of those of us who are already here,” said Puente.

In this regard, he indicated five areas that his department considers strategic, such as culture and tourism, biotechnology and agri-food, the blue economy, industry 4.0 and health. “The union of all the agents involved in the technological transformation of these areas will be critical for us to move forward,” continued the general director. In that sense, he advocated public-private cooperation as a model to increase efficiency and insisted on placing people at the center of any medium and long-term action.

“In Cantabria we have everything to build a great future,” he insisted. “We have all the enthusiasm, we have the purpose, the clear objectives of what needs to be done, the companies and the will to be more competitive,” concluded the general director.
