About 42 Urduliz

In a society in which the digitalization of all daily activities is growing unstoppably, the lack of digital training can become a factor of social exclusion, at the level of academic training itself. This situation is aggravated if people's employability depends more and more on their level of digital training. According to the DESI (The Digital Economy and Society Index), the Basque Country ranks eighth, ahead of Germany and France in the human capital dimension, 10 points above the European average, while the Spanish State as a whole is 3.5 points below*. In the latter case, just over half of the people between the ages of 16 and 74 have basic digital skills. This lack of recruitment contrasts with the increasingly high demand in the labor market for qualified digital profiles. Last year, 300,000 jobs were not filled in the state alone and, at present, almost 60% of companies have difficulty finding the most in-demand digital profiles. Following the successful opening of 42 in Madrid, the innovative programming campus will open in “Urduliz” a municipality of the province of Vizcaya in the Basque Country in 2021. With 42 Urduliz, Fundación Telefónica and the “Diputación Foral” de Bizkaia go one step further and anticipate the professional scene of the future. Together they want to respond to the needs of the labor market and prepare society for the new digital professions, in a framework, Bizkaia, which will become a benchmark for innovation, and which has a firm commitment to attracting technological talent and investing in training digital for all of society.
