CTAG visits Israel’s start-up ecosystem

Visita a la cápsula TAU de la Universidad de Tel Aviv

Representatives of CTAG visit Israel these days to deepen their knowledge of the Israeli innovation ecosystem, which has led this country to be known as the “Start-Up Nation”.

Several meetings are planned, including the one that will take place with Technion (Israel Institute of Technology), a global centre of reference for new technologies. CTAG will also visit the Smart City Transportation Lab, in which Mobileye (leading provider of software for advanced driver assistance systems) and MIT REAP (business acceleration programme linked to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology) are represented, and will meet the Israeli agency for H2020 projects (EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation).

CTAG travels to Israel accompanied by IGAPE, which supports this trip through the Galicia Exporta Organismos Intermedios aid. The Spanish Embassy in Israel will also collaborate hosting some of the meetings.

This visit is the continuation of another expedition promoted by the Xunta de Galicia in February 2018 in which CTAG took part together with different Galician organisations and companies from various sectors.

The objective of this mission is to establish new commercial and institutional relationships in one of the most powerful innovation centres in the world, which will allow us to identify new opportunities for the Galician automotive industry linked to the mobility of the future, autonomous driving and Industry 4.0.

CTAG participa en la futura lonja 4.0 del puerto de Vigo

CTAG, industry 4.0

El puerto de Vigo pondrá en marcha a principios de 2018 un proyecto para modernizar la lonja tras un estudio previo realizado por CTAG.

El presidente de la Autoridad Portuaria de Vigo, Enrique López Veiga, presentó a los usuarios de la terminal este proyecto bautizado como “Lonja del Futuro”, con el que busca un puerto pesquero conectado donde exista un total acceso a la información que se genera. Para ello, se han propuesto una serie de mejoras que van desde la informatización de la rula hasta la creación de un sistema para la descarga inteligente y automatizada. También se mejorarán los sistemas de refrigeración con el fin de garantizar la cadena de frío. Además, se tomarán medidas de eficiencia energética con la sustitución de las luminarias actuales, y se instalará un sistema de “Smart Greed” para la gestión de la energía eléctrica.

Este proyecto es el resultado de una serie de estudios previos encargados a CTAG sobre flujos logísticos y aprovechamiento de espacios. Tras un profundo análisis fueron detectadas varias deficiencias que serán subsanadas con la modernización de la lonja.

También se ha contado con la aportación de los usuarios de las instalaciones, los principales perjudicados por las deficiencias que presenta el edificio. Además, se trata de un proyecto abierto para que hagan sus aportaciones de cara a optimizar la Lonja del Futuro.
