On Wednesday, January 24th, the first Technology for Chile breakfast event was held. Companies such as Microsoft, IBM, Cisco, the Luksic Education Foundation, and educational institutions such as Instituto Nacional, the SIP network of schools and the Santo Tomás group, were all present at the event and helped to define a series of needs in order to then jointly develop a program that could benefit the whole country.
On that same day, Technology for Chile invited different educational institutions, including schools, technical colleges and universities, to register for the program. This program looks to provide schools with the necessary infrastructure and access to technology and knowledge (through training) in order to develop links with the technology companies that are collaborating on this project.
