SENER is part of the BAIC, the Basque Artificial Intelligence Center

SENER, together with 16 other entities, is part of the Basque Artificial Intelligence Center (BAIC) Association, which was presented by the Basque Government on Wednesday, July 28 in the Álava Technology Park in Miñano (Vitoria, Spain). The BAIC is intended to lead and promote the development of Artificial Intelligence in the Basque Country and will serve as a public-private collaboration space, while also housing a laboratory for experiments and to accelerate projects that serve as an international benchmark in this field.

The presentation of the BAIC was overseen by the President of the Basque Country, Iñigo Urkullu, and was attended by SENER's President, Andrés Sendagorta, and SENER's Energy Technology Director, Elvira García.

Together with SENER, other backers of the BAIC include the companies CAF, Deusto Seidor, Euskaltel, Gestamp, Hupi Ibérica, Iberdrola, Inzu Group, ITP Aero, Mondragón Corporación, Onkologikoa, Petronor and Versia; and science-technology entities and training centers, including Tecnalia, Vicomtech and the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM). The public collaboration is provided by the SPRI Group, on behalf of the Department of Economic Development, Sustainability and Environment of the Basque Government.

With the launch of the BAIC, the Basque Government wants to lead the development and application of knowledge in AI, which is why the Governance Programme includes AI among its priorities, namely, in commitment 14, "Industry 4.0 with roots in the Basque Country and the development of Artificial Intelligence." Similarly, the Basque Country's 2025 Digital Transformation Strategy, approved on March 31, 2021, sets Artificial Intelligence as one of the key technological drivers to meet the challenges posed by the three aforementioned transitions.

As a result, the Basque Country is falling in line with the European Commission in its commitment to digital transformation, and with the major technological powers and other smaller advanced countries towards the expanded use of AI. In this regard, countries such as Finland, Denmark, Slovenia and Estonia are developing more specialized approaches to carve out their niche and stand out from the larger and more advanced countries.
