This agreement aims to generate professional development opportunities

Valencia, March 13, 2024 – ValgrAI, a foundation supported by the Generalitat Valenciana and the Department of Education, Universities, and Employment, has signed a collaboration agreement with Xarxatec, an association that brings together more than 60 companies from Castellón with the aim of fostering the expansion of technological companies through cooperation among different stakeholders in the ecosystem and the development of qualified talent.

This agreement arises from a collaboration already started last year between both entities, whose interests converge in the promotion of innovation and the generation of talent in the field of artificial intelligence. Specifically, this agreement will serve to establish a collaboration focused on promoting projects, training programs, and joint research, in the field of AI.

One of the highlighted initiatives is the promotion of continuous AI training for Xarxatec members, with special discounts provided by ValgrAI. This collaboration will extend professional development opportunities in AI through training programs and activities of the Artificial Intelligence Innovation Alliance (AIIA), a community created by ValgrAI to foster innovation in AI that will facilitate the generation of synergies through interaction with other companies, researchers, and students in the field of AI.

For José Bort, president of Xarxatec, “this alliance represents a significant step forward in our efforts to drive innovation in artificial intelligence,” and therefore, “we are delighted to collaborate with ValgrAI to make the most of the potential of AI and contribute to the advancement of this technology.”

For her part, the Managing Director of ValgrAI, Ana Cidad, has pointed out that “the signing of this agreement represents a solid commitment to promote innovation and development in artificial intelligence among Castellón’s technological companies. The companies that form Xarxatec are benchmarks in their business areas, so this collaboration will mean a boost towards the use of AI in high-impact projects both at a regional and international level.”
