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.
An open event takes place every year to share the progress of the different projects.
The event for 2016 took place on June 28th-29th, 2016, videos and slides available here.
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.
