20 October 2017 - DIGITAL REGIONS  project
Under 'Connecting Talent' initiative, Fomento San Sebastian (a Core ERNACT Region in the North of Spain) is developing remarkable work on the field of innovation and the next big step comes next week. From the 23 to 27 of October, Donostia - San Sebastian city will be the capital of innovation, once again, through an event promoted by our partner Fomento de San Sebastián: the 4th WeekINN.

This event will take innovation to the next level offering an interesting programme of activities: almost 80 events for companies, university students, schoolchildren, researchers and citizens at large. All the activities will take place in about 40 venues across the city. Fomento San Sebastian has organised more than 200 hours’ activities with international experts, R&D+i actors and representatives of European networks, to discuss the relevance of an innovation ecosystem as a driving force of change, growth and social cohesion in the city.

A series of activities with a schedule of their own will be carried out in the context of Donostia WeekINN. In this way, 30 Donostia-based technology centres, companies and entrepreneurs will develop 42 different activities, including:
  • Guided tours of companies and technology centres; hands-on visits to labs. 
  • Talks by researchers about their most outstanding projects. 
  • Talks by company representatives and entrepreneurs about their most innovative projects. 
  • Social entrepreneurship workshops. 
  • Robotics and programming workshops based on STEAM learning.

It is remarkable that during the 4th edition, almost 1000 students from local schools and vocational training centres will be able to learn about innovation too. Apart from that, visitors will be able to attend robotics workshops, try new technologies and get acquainted with innovative projects.

Throughout the week, a mural will be painted on the Boulevard area of the city, based on WeekINN concepts and activities. Furthermore, citizens from San Sebastian and surroundings and also all interested people abroad will have the opportunity to follow up a blog ( for a daily summary of the most outstanding activities at Donostia WeekInn.
