In a meeting held on the 16th of April in which representatives from the six technological centres
that form ATIGA were in attendance, Francisco Conde, the Minister for Economy, Employment and
Industry of the Regional Government of Galicia, defined these centres as “an essential resource for
Galicia’s industrial future”, going on to stress the important role that innovation, science and
technology are playing, both in reactivating the economy, and in meeting the new challenges that
have arisen as a result of the current situation. For this reason, all of these programmes that play
an important role in driving innovation will be supported by GAIN (the Galician Innovation Agency),
and, likewise the ATIGA technological centres have been officially recognised as National
Technological Centres by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation.
