This year the Gune Community has continued to grow and advance in the connection between Higher Education + Business with 42 new projects.
The 4gune and KSIgune clusters have continued their work in 2023 to respond to the demands of the Basque sectors of smart industry and cultural and creative industries, from the fields of training, research and transfer.
In addition to having promoted 42 new projects connecting Higher Education and Business, both clusters have continued to provide service to universities and Higher Education centres by updating the Capacities Map, new training schemes, calls for Business + University projects, and participation in international events and alliances.
The year-end newsletter of the Gune Community highlights some of the milestones for 2023 to promote the socio-demographic, energy-climatic and technological-digital transition in the Basque Country.
These milestones are a sample of the work that will continue in 2024 in a greater commitment to continue collaborating with schools, faculties, centres and entities that form part of the 4gune and KSIgune ecosystems, in the context of the Basque Business+University Strategy and the RIS3 Smart Specialisation Strategy.
