Xunta de Galicia includes Situm in the Talento Senior programme

The fourth edition of the Talento Sénior grant allocates more than 940,000 euros to continue consolidating the Galician innovation system by attracting and retaining talent. Situm, among nine other companies, research organizations and technology centres, has benefited from this aid.

Xunta de Galicia publishes in the Diario Oficial de Galicia (DOG) the resolution of the call for the Senior Talent programme, which will allocate more than 940,000 euros to further consolidate the Galician R+D+i system through the attraction and retention of professionals.

The grants, focused on the return of research professionals with consolidated careers, will support 13 contracts. Specifically, this initiative selected nine companies and four research organizations and technology centres in A Coruña, Santiago, O Salnés, Ourense and Vigo to hire specialists in R+D+i linked to biotechnology, agri-food, energy, environment, health, industrial manufacturing, aeronautics, or information technologies.

The beneficiaries are the technology centre Fundación Instituto Tecnológico de Galicia (ITG) and the company Nubodata Tech Solutions (A Coruña); Advanced Science and Technology (Ames); Situm Technologies and the Fundación Instituto de Investigación Sanitaria de Santiago de Compostela; the company Egatel and the Galician Institute of Food Quality-Evega (Ourense); the companies Alice Biometrics, Edafotec Suelos a la Carta, Hermasa Canning Tecnology, the Gradiant technology centre and the Marine Research Institute (Vigo); and Sociedad Agrícola Gallega (Vilanova de Arousa).

Of the new hires to be made, eight will be permanent contracts (61%), and seven are for candidates returning from other communities (Asturias, Madrid and Barcelona, among others) or from outside Spain (the United Kingdom, Portugal and Belgium). In addition, seven of the thirteen contracts supported are for women.

This initiative, together with other measures such as Oportunius, Principia or Ignicia, is part of the Talento 2021 programme, promoted by the Xunta de Galicia through the Galician Innovation Agency (Gain) to generate, retain, and attract 1,500 professionals to Galicia. In total, the four editions of the Talento Sénior programme have supported the recruitment of 49 highly qualified professionals to carry out R&D&I tasks in Galician companies and research organizations.

This programme is a stimulus for companies to carry out their innovation activities in Galicia while acting as a driving force in the mobilisation and attraction of private capital for Galician innovation processes, boosting the competitiveness of the business fabric and supporting the creation, retention and attraction of talent and skilled jobs.

Staff co-funded by the Xunta de Galicia under the Resolution of the Galician Innovation Agency of 1 March 2021 (Senior Talent programme).
