Information and Communication Technologies.
• To promote skill-building for social inclusion and
training of new ICT professionals.
Collaboration between the ICT sector and citizens
interested in these objectives is being defined by a
digital survey that will enable all technology stakeholders
to get involved in developing the Digital Agenda.
The work on preparing the Digital Agenda began with the
creation of a "Technical Office" that is
receiving surveys from qualified parties, businesses,
employers' unions, associations and users.
The survey is based on the six objectives of the Digital
Agenda and will enable contributions to be made to one or
more of the strategic points. The deadline for receiving
contributions expires on 31 May 2012.
The Technical Office, which operates under the State
Secretariat of Telecommunications and the Information
Society and forms part of the Ministry of the Treasury and
Public Administration Services, will design a Plan that
will be made public over the summer.
The process of preparing the Digital Agenda for Spain will
also consider the report being drafted by the High-Level
Group that was set up in March to provide a strategic
reflection on the main challenges currently being faced by
the ITC sector.
Anyone interested in doing so can request access to the
survey by sending an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
