Uruguay, Barcelona to Cooperate on Innovation

MONTEVIDEO – Uruguay’s industry, energy and mines minister and the deputy mayor of Barcelona signed on Tuesday a cooperation agreement aimed at improving scientific and technological innovation.

“The idea is to exchange experiences and cross cultures to find the best experiences so that our individual cultures can advance,” Minister Carolina Cosse said.

“Uruguay has made some excellent progress in its energy development...and has done some important telecommunications development,” she told EFE, adding that her country’s institutions “promote entrepreneurship” and that Barcelona is an “icon” in that regard.

Gerardo Pisarello, for his part, said that while it is atypical for a ministry and a municipality to sign such an agreement, Uruguay and Barcelona share “a common strategy,” which is to go all out for scientific innovation, “as any progressive government must do.”

In that sense, the deputy mayor told EFE that development in the scientific and technological sectors permits the “empowerment of citizens” faced with the big changes being produced by the economy being digitized.

“This is a value-added economy based on knowledge and technological innovation and is therefore an economy less dependent on the speculation of the rentier sector. It is consequently where the 21st century is going. We believe the accord we have signed will be a means for exchanging experiences,” Pisanello said.
