On one side, the purpose is that any other sectors improve their competitiveness and performance with the incorporation of ICTs and on the other, to dynamize the ICT sector thanks to its prescription through these actions.
From AERTIC the specific training is proposed to depend on local suppliers as far as possible, the members such as the Think TIC and the Technological Centers should be also considered, in the manner that some time is reserved at the end of the training for the exposure of success cases of the involved sector companies that apply these technologies of the hand of the local supplier of AERTIC, and to edit some catalogues which will be distributed with the course material where each company exposes its capabilities.
