Mac Donald and Goldbaum led the workshop.

The president of the National Agency for Science and Technology Promotion, Fernando Goldbaum, with the director of the Argentinean Sector Fund (FONARSEC), Isabel Mac Donald, led the opening of the "G-Tec Workshop", the training programme for managers and technological linkers aimed at non-profit public and private universities and institutions dedicated to higher education. The purpose of the programme is to promote the development of human resources enhancing the capabilities of innovation and technological development in companies and in scientific-technological institutions, business and local development chambers.

During his speech, Goldbaum expressed great expectation regarding "the force of human resources created through the G-Tec programme to cover the linking tasks between the scientific sector and industry". The head of the Agency then addressed the students and explained that "for the virtues of the Agency in terms of its power, flexibility and manageability reach the community, we need you to develop a strong intermediary between the scientific world and the productive sector in order to broad the base of our instruments in a diversified and federal manner”.

The meeting continued with the presentation of the Undersecretary for Policy in Science, Technology and Productive Innovation of the Science Portfolio, Fernando Peirano, who discoursed about the call of the "National Programme of Support for Technological Demands Survey" (PAR as per its Spanish acronym) which subsidizes the inclusion of graduates from the G-TEC programme into the beneficiary institutions in order to extend the work in the territory, recognize skills, strengths and weaknesses of the productive sectors in which they are specialized, helping to increase opportunities to generate future innovation projects and technology transfer.

The working day was organized restrictedly; however it counted with federal presence of students so that everyone had the opportunity to participate, share experiences, provide ideas and points of view with the aim of getting the best conclusions and proposals for the operation of the programme. Attendees analyzed the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats, based on their experiences during the course. In addition, the "Map of Innovation" was introduced, a project of the G-Tec Patagonia node which is under execution.

Today, the G-TEC programme is coordinated by six consortiums composed of academic institutions around the country. It has, overall, 749 students enrolled in the first cohort, a total of 507 regular students and 96 graduates.

The Human Resources Training Programme for Technological Management and Linkage in the Northern Area (North G-Tec) gathers activities developed in the National University of Tucumán, the National University of Jujuy and the Northeastern National University.
