Innovation and Information Technology (IT)
Chile faces new challenges and innovation is presented as a solution to the stagnation in productivity that has occurred in recent years. A true digital transformation, which impacts on crucial aspects for Chileans such as employment, health, urban development and energy, is becoming increasingly urgent. But this transformation must imply a cultural change in the public and private sectors: it requires the development of a national strategy, the building of the necessary social capital to promote collaboration between the different actors and sectors, and also the availability of timely public information that is at the same time of quality and handled in useful formats, for the empowerment of the citizenship and strengthening of our democracy. Thus, at Espacio Público we believe that to achieve true development we must install innovation and the use of new technologies as an essential tool.
