Promotion
Success Story / Achievements: 

The Cluster of the Information Technology and Communication sector of La Rioja (hereinafter AERTIC) started its activity in July 2010 as an instrument to channel the interests and needs of the technological sector linked to ICT in La Rioja. It is currently specialized in the agrifood sector and internet-based services and is made up of 87 member companies with a total turnover of more than 210 million euros and which brings together more than 3,500 workers.

After several years of activity, the objective of uniting interests and generating a unitary public image has been achieved, little by little promoting knowledge, networking and trust among the partners that has resulted in recognition as a Technology Center.

AERTIC collaborates in the dynamization, management, presentation and coordination of R+D+i projects both own and for partner companies, which are presented in regional, national and international calls.

Why should partners choose you for cooperation?: 

AERTIC has a trained and experienced technical team and develops its activities in an ecosystem with great growth potential. It has partners of diverse nature (entrepreneurs, SMEs, large companies, knowledge centers, etc.) with great international experience and ability to collaborate in cooperative projects. AERTIC Collaborates actively with other clusters in the region, carrying out collaborative projects and transfer of both technology and knowledge. AERTIC collaborates with the two universities in the region and is one of the key actors in the establishment of policies and the realization of activities to attract and retain talent. For all of the above, AERTIC is an entity with sufficient capacity and motivation to participate in any project related to ICT.
