15 de mayo de 2024

The Public Digitalization Program (PDP), which runs from May 13-17, entered its third day today with a series of highlights for its 25 participants from Romania. This initiative, funded by the European Union, the Romanian Government and the Northeast Region of the country, has as its main objective to promote and facilitate the digitization of public services through integration and learning between different cultures and administrative systems.

The day started with a visit to Fundecyt-PCTEX, a prominent entity dedicated to the funding of innovative projects under the auspices of the Regional Government of Extremadura. Fundecyt’s technology coordinator, Anto Recio, explained to the delegates the various opportunities that the entity offers to entrepreneurs and how its innovative programs are developed. This presentation allowed the PDP participants to obtain a comprehensive view of the management and support of technological projects in the region.

Afterwards, the day continued with an informative session on digital transformation and cybersecurity, led by members of the Civil Guard. Lieutenant Colonel Rafael Roldán Parra, together with Commander S.G. and Lieutenant M.D. from the General Directorate in Madrid, shared with the group the Benemérita’s approach to digitalization and the current cybersecurity challenges facing Spain. These talks have been essential to understand the dimensions of digital security in the field of public administration.

The day concluded with a visit to the College of Nursing of Cáceres, where Dr. Raquel Rodríguez Llanos, president of the College, together with Blanca Perera, responsible for communication of the General Council of Nursing, as well as other members of the Executive Committee, have received the group. During the meeting, the advances in digitalization that this College, a pioneer in Spain, is implementing at national level, have been highlighted, offering a perspective on the adaptation of traditional professions to the new digital paradigms.

The PDP reaches its ‘halfway point’ and continues to prove to be a vital platform for the exchange of knowledge and experiences in the digitization of public services, offering participants a wide range of tools and knowledge that can be applied in their respective regions.
