Attracting national and international talent

The National Artificial Intelligence Strategy aims to consolidate Spain as a leading country in attracting the talent of experts in artificial intelligence and the creation of R&D centers for international companies.

To achieve this goal, actions must be put in place to boost digital skills in AI, attract international talent and retain national talent.

In recent years, Spain has been recognized as one of the leading countries in attracting talent, with two cities in the top 10 in Europe for establishing start-ups: Madrid and Barcelona. There are currently talent attraction projects in a state of development in Aragon, Valencia, Malaga, Granada, Bilbao and A Coruña and other parts of the country that have developed notable innovation capacities, and which are attractive for investment by both national and foreign companies due to better quality of life conditions and lower economic costs.

Two initiatives will be launched as part of this measure:

  • "SpAIn Talent" Hub to attract both academic and professional talent, paying special attention to attracting foreign investment and social impact investment, promoting the incorporation of female entrepreneurs and female talent.
  • AI Chairs.  Organization and holding of seminars related to artificial intelligence, research work and training activities.
