The Rector of the University of Granada and the team from the Talent Incubator participate in the opening of T-Systems’ new headquarters in Granada.
Pedro Mercado, Rector of the University of Granada, and Blanca Delgado, Alumni Manager of the University of Granada’s Talent Incubator, have taken part in the official opening of T-Systems’ new headquarters in Granada. The opening of the new headquarters signifies the opportunity to further strengthen the strategic relationship that the University of Granada and T-Systems have already established regarding the first Chair in Spain on Digital Sustainability Innovation, directed by Alberto Aragón, Professor of Business Organization.
T-Systems is a subsidiary of Deutsche Telekom, the largest telecommunications company in Europe and one of the largest in the world. T-Systems provides digitization services for businesses and public administration, and the new headquarters strengthens the company’s Value Center. During the event, T-Systems announced that this opening allows them to advance their commitment to reach one thousand employees in Andalusia by 2024, one year ahead of the previously announced timeline.
In addition to the representatives of the University of Granada, the inaugural event was attended by the Counselor of the Presidency of the Andalusian Regional Government, Antonio Sanz; the Mayor of Granada, Marifrán Carazo; Rosa Rodríguez, Vice President of Sales at T-Systems Iberia; and Aitor Vinós, Senior Advisor of T-Systems Iberia, among others.
The recruitment of talent has been a fundamental element in driving T-Systems’ projects in Andalusia. Supported by their close collaboration with the University of Granada, the Deutsche Telekom subsidiary has also promoted other projects to foster sustainability as a business driver among its clients. This includes the first Chair of Digital Sustainability Innovation, promoted in partnership with the University of Granada, which has already graduated its first class with 80% of the students joining T-Systems’ workforce in the city.
The new facilities of the Value Center in Granada cover almost 5,000 square meters and are used for professional activities related to disruptive technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Data Spaces, and Big Data. The Granada Value Center is part of a national network of innovation centers with two other locations in Reus and Valencia, and it plays a key role in providing big data services, advanced analytics, and artificial intelligence, as well as the development of Data Spaces for T-Systems clients internationally.
