1st International Congress for Managers of Telecentres / Social Innovation Centres

The SIC (Social Innovation Centre) Network in the Basque Country, "KZgunea", which holds the Vice-Presidency of the Spanish Community Association of Telecentre Networks, is organising and playing host to this first meeting of telecentre managers. The aim is to create a meeting point where Spanish, European and Latin American organisations can share methodologies, processes, resources, tools and new practices in Management and Coordination, in addition to analyzing the current situation and evolution of the aforementioned.

It is within the context of this current scenario of SIC centres in which Coordinating and Management personnel become an essential figure in the setting in motion of programmes that have been developed. They are responsible for coordinating enabler personnel who, for their part, must be willing to acquire wide knowledge of the social milieu of the region where the centre is located so as to be able to establish links with it and also ensure that the centre becomes established a territorial benchmark where tailor-made advice can be offered to companies, training plans drawn up and ICTs developed both within and outside the municipality.
