Information Day in Catalonia, on 14 February

The Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda, through the public entity Red.es, and the Government of Catalonia, organize a day to report the grants program "Digital Professionals Youth Employment". It will take place on February 14 at the premises of the Secretaryship of Telecommunications, Cybersecurity and Digital Society: Carrer Salvador Espriu 45-51 (Polygon Pedrosa), L'Hospitalet de Llobregat.

The seminar will be led by Ricard Faura, Head of Digital Inclusion and Training of the Secretaryship of Telecommunications, Cybersecurity and Digital Society, and Laura Bujanda, from the Department of Economics of Digital Red.es. The aim is to explain to companies, associations and foundations how they can profit from € 13.5 million aid (corresponding to the group of regions in which it is Catalonia) to develop integrated employment in the field of Information technologies and Communications and the Digital Economy.

The meeting will present the call and answer questions, and if at the end of the meeting you have further questions, comments or other issues will have the opportunity to make an individual consult to the technicians of the program.

From the Department of Telecommunications, Cybersecurity and Digital Society believe that "it is a good opportunity to find a program that highlights the actions that are being carried out in Catalonia."
