CEOE-CEPYME Cantabria (http://www.ceoecant.es/) is one of the aggregates of Cantabria International Campus according to the agreement signed by the Institution in 2009. CEOE-CEPYME and the University of Cantabria have also signed a bilateral and specific agreement to develop action-lines in the framework of Cantabria International Campus.
The participation of CEOE-CEPYME gains greater value for its vocation to promote knowledge transfer, the entrepreneurial sector being one of these channels which transforms the knowledge generated in the university into richness and employment for Cantabria.
As part of Cantabria International Campus, CEOE-CEPYME has collaborated with the UC and Sodercan in the creation of the ICT Cluster * to promote the transfer of R+D+i in the technological area of excellence, by means of the consolidation and dynamization of the cluster of ICT companies. CEOE-CEPYME has also collaborated in the creation of The Sea of Innovation Cantabria Cluster , an aggregation of public and private organizations that constitute an international reference in research with regards to renewable energies in the marine environment.*
CEOE-CEPYME also participates in the institutionalization of the relationship between University– Company in cooperation with the Chamber of Commerce. Besides, with other aggregates, it is part of the Organizing Committee of the International Meeting of Entrepreneurship experts which is going to take place in November 2011.
Finally , CEOE-CEPYME is reinforcing the practical training of university students by providing a training programme in companies.
