The DGA endorses the candidacies of Teruel and Zaragoza for the Spatial and Artificial Intelligence Agencies

El Ejecutivo aragonés ha avalado este miércoles las candidacies for Teruel and Zaragoza to opt out to be the seat of future Spanish Spatial and Artificial Intelligence Agenciessegún ha acordado este miercoles el Consejo de Gobierno.

In rueda de prensa, the counselor of the Presidency, Mayte Pérez, has signaled that both candidacies “engage with the motivations” of the convocation, social cohesion and the fight against despoblación.

Regarding the Turolense candidacy, Pérez has highlighted the existence of an industrial airport, an ecosystem in the field of research and the Center for Physics of the Cosmos, as well “the political, institutional and social unity” about the project.

In relation to Zaragoza’s candidacy, he said that it has an “optimal” space, as is the Digital Innovation Hub, “a clear example of the good result of public-private collaboration”, as well as that the regional government has Artificial Intelligence Strategy 2022-2027.

El Ejecutivo autonomico ha issued sentos reports of suitability that will be incorporated in the memories of each candidate, which are being finalized for their presentation in the next days via telemática before the Ministerio de Política Territorial.

El Gobierno apuesta por ubicar la AEE en Teruel por su especialización en el amíveto aerospacial, tanto en actividades scientificas como technological y empresarioles, así como por la oportunidad que supone para la ciudad y su entourno para hacer frente al reto demográfico.

According to the Executive, the Agency’s arrival will boost the incipient aerospace industry development pole generated in the Turolense capital, thanks to the platform aeroportuaria de Teruelas well as the dynamic ecosystem around research, innovation and dissemination in astrophysics, led by the Center for Physical Studies of the Cosmos of Aragon (Cefca), which works with the European Space Agency, and is reinforced by research and teaching in the field of space and aeronautics of the public universities (Universidad de Zaragoza and UNED).

In this sense, the Gobierno highlights that the decentralization in Teruel will not only fit with the specialization of the territory, and it would be an example of the concrete development of an area in a particular territory, based on the interconnection of business, scientific and technological activities based on innovation systemic; sinoque sería una palanca vista por la ciudadanía como voluntada de vertarbar el Estado, correcting the centralization of the structure and historical infrastructure towards otros territories más favoredidos.

Por su parte, el Consejo supports the candidacy of Zaragoza in the race to be the seat of AESIA with the aspiration of another step forward in the technological revolution of the next decade y leaderar espacios de investigação e innovación en torno a esta tecnología disruptive.

Como nudo logistic y tecnologico, la capital Aragonesa cuenta ya con un potente y diverso ecosistema en la materia, con más de 390 agents involucrados, 34 grupos de I+D+iy 294 proyectos en marcha, and with the differential opportunity que supone el Aragón Digital Innovation Hub, desde el que se leaderan tecnologia clave como son los Cognitive Sistemas, conjugando la Intelligence Artificial, Big Data y aproximaciones humanas de comprehension y aprendização, y las altas prestaciones de computación. The Community has just approved the artificial intelligence strategy, the route with which to maximize all capacities.

Both candidacies will be presented publicly next 4 and 7 November, in Teruel and Zaragoza, and remitidas al Ministerio de Política Territorial para su posterior valoración por una comisión consultiva. De acuerdo al Real Decreto para la determinación de sedes físicas, la comisión elaborará un dictamen, que habrá de ponerse en conocimiento de la Comisión Delegada del Gobierno para el RetoDemográfico, y remitirse al Consejo de Ministros que será, finamente, quien adoptará la decisión.

The objective of the State is to have the Space Agency in operation throughout the first quarter of 2023 and the Supervision of Artificial Intelligence in June of the next year.
