A number of transversal actions aim at consolidating the department as a reference research center in the topics related to knowledge extraction. It includes promoting transversal methodologies related to knowledge extraction; establishing better connections and synergies between the research groups and with the international leading organisations in academic, industrial and social contexts; organizing educational and training events (see section events for additional information on scientific events).

Reproducibility in Research

María de Maeztu Gender and ICT program

Technology is present in every aspect of our lives. The lack of gender diversity in ICT becomes an issue of social and economic importance. A central aspect in our strategy to strengthen our knowledge extraction activities is to infuse diversity in all of them. The program is named after María de Maeztu, a pioneer in promoting the access to higher education for women in Spain.
