Isdefe Horizons Network at the Alcalá de Henares Mobile Week

From 16 to 24 October, Alcalá de Henares was home to Mobile Week.

Over these nine days, this event hosted over 50 conferences, showrooms and round tables with some of Spain’s technology leaders in order to boost ties between the public, corporations, academia and institutions that promote innovation.

The Mobile Week schedule included over 200 hours of activities for children and adults, and more than 100 innovative projects were presented by companies and university research groups.

The conference “5G, poorly implemented, and other great hits” was presented by Mr José Antonio Portilla, a professor at the University of Alcalá, director of the Isdefe Chair on Cybersecurity, ICT and Digital Progress of the Isdefe Horizons Network.

Portilla provided an understandable and accessible explanation of 5G in a talk that was open to the public and streamed live.

The Horizons Network is a group of technological and methodological laboratories that give Isdefe the ability to anticipate the challenges and opportunities that the Spanish administration will have to face. The Isdefe Chair at the University of Alcalá de Henares is home to two observatories: the Cybersecurity Observatory and the ICT and Digital Progress Observatory.

The Horizons Network relies on the Academia-Company partnership model to create a network of experts nationally and abroad whose goal is to enhance and share the know-how present in Isdefe, universities and the Administration.
