About the importance of promoting research, Mr. Barañao said “the science and technology new role is to generate jobs and substantially improve the quality of life". Making a difference between science today and what happened 30 years ago, he said that "today reality is very different and science aims to occupy the role it occupies in developed countries". He also assured that "one of the main drivers clearly identified of this cultural change is the Software Industry: the knowledge industry par excellence, the industry producing quality work".

Mr. Tomada stressed the importance of the Sadosky Awards because it is "one of the best expressions of the articulation between the public and private sectors". In this regard, he said that the role of the government and particularly of the Ministry of Labour is to "strengthen the articulation, generating shared spaces from employment policies ". At the end of his speech he added "we will continue to deepen the federalization of this joint job between the Ministry of Labour and the CESSI".

The CESSI president, José María Louzao Andrade said "we are here to reward the Argentina intelligence" and he stressed that "we must rethink the technological sovereignty as a Nation’s right and duty to dominate their technological means".
