  • Description
  • Programme

The changing situation of competitiveness at the international level, globalization and the changes carried out by the new digitalized industry, provide to the companies’ technological innovation a decisive role for tem in reaching better positions in the new international area. In Spain, the situation is particularly worrying according to the relative backwardness that Spanish history shows in the topics related to innovation. Among the multiple elements that determine the technological capabilities of companies, very little attention has been paid to the role of Vocational Training in the innovative possibilities of companies, when, in reality, it is agreed that it is very important. If we take into account that Spain does not have an advanced profile in the areas of Vocational Training, we believe that the opportunity of this workshop is doubly important.
