UGR recognizes T-Systems for its support of innovation and university talent.

The multinational company T-Systems has been awarded the Business Recognition Award by the University of Granada. This award has been granted for the results achieved through the collaboration between the university and the company within the framework of the T-Systems-University of Granada Chair of Innovation in Sustainability. The chair is pioneering in Europe in its field and promotes dissemination and training actions in the field of digitalization and sustainability.

The award was granted by the Faculty of Economics and Business Sciences, led by its Dean Alberto Castañeda, and was presented by Pedro Mercado, Rector of the University of Granada, to Cristina Caamiña, Director of T-Systems Value Centers in Granada and Reus. Both Alberto and Cristina highlighted the convergence of objectives of the two organizations around innovation, knowledge, and internationalization.

Alberto Aragon-Correa, Chair Director, and Lola Vidal, Coordinator, announced that the joint University-T-Systems committee is already preparing the program for the following year of the Chair. Francisco Ruiz, who also attended the event and is a member of that committee, also confirmed that they expect a combination of continuity and novelty in the actions for the next academic year. Salvador del Barrio, Vice-Rector for Strategy and Communication of the University of Granada, and Vanessa Martos Muñoz, Director of the Mediterranean Center, highlighted the potential of these collaborations for a future in which new opportunities are constantly emerging.

From the Talent Incubator, we are delighted to have this Chair in our program of activities.

We deeply appreciate T-Systems for its ongoing collaboration with the university through the UGR Talent Incubator, as well as its commitment to innovation and academic and professional excellence.

We continue to move forward together towards a digital and sustainable future!
