4GUNE is the Basque Cluster for University Training in Engineering, Science and Technology. The presidency of the cluster lies with the University Policy and Coordination Division of the Deputy Ministry for Universities and Research of the Basque Government's Department of Education.

4GUNE is known for its systemic cooperation aligned with the Basque Government’s 2022 University-Business Strategy which ultimately aims at contributing to strengthening the Business+University collaboration in the Basque Country within the new scenario of the Basque RIS3.

The initial years of the 4GUNE Cluster have been developed mainly in Industry 4.0 but it aims to have an impact on all priority areas of the RIS3 in the Basque Country. The main programmes developed within the framework of the cluster are:

  • MAP OF CAPACITIES
  • BUSINESS+UNIVERSITY
  • EXECUTIVE TRAINING PROGRAMME
  • TECHNOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE CROSS-BORDER LABORATORY

MAP OF CAPACITIES

The map of training, research, transfer skills and equipment of the 4GUNE member university centres initially aims to reflect the detailed reality of the Basque University System in relation to Industry 4.0. This is the first step towards fostering a greater transfer of the value generated from the University to the country's productive sector based on the creation and strengthening of the strategic alliances between universities, companies and other social agents. 

 

BUSINESS+UNIVERSITY

The aim of this programme is to bring the University closer to the Company by fostering practical collaboration between them through business challenges aimed at activating skills, fostering the participation of the student body and university teaching staff. 

 

EXECUTIVE TRAINING PROGRAMME

The implementation of an executive programme within Industry 4.0 derives from an analysis developed by the Advanced Manufacturing Pilot Group on the competencies demanded by the Basque industry for different professional profiles.

 

TECHNOLOGICAL INTELLIGENCE CROSS-BORDER LABORATORY

The main purpose is to acquire skills so that 4GUNE can develop technological prospecting and monitoring to detect technological development trends, opportunities and niches for the different areas of the Basque RIS3.
