Bizkaia Talent awards diplomas to the participants of Talentia Skills and Be Basque Ambassadors

  • 122 undergraduates and post-graduate students with the greatest potential in Bizkaia received their awards after successfully completing both programmes.

On the 21st June Bizkaia Talent hosted a diploma-award ceremony at the Bizkaia Aretoa building for the university students who have completed the Talentia service programmes over the course of the academic year 2023/2024: Talentia Skills and Be Basque Ambassadors. These programmes foster the progress of local university talent by means of skills development and an introduction to the current business world of the province of Bizkaia.

The event was attended by the Provincial Councillor for Economic Promotion of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, Ms Ainara Basurko, the Vice-Chancellor of Students and Employability of the UPV/EHU University of the Basque Country, Mr Fernando Tapia, the Vice-Chancellor of Entrepreneurship and Business Relations of the University of Deusto, Mr Victor Urcelay, the Academic Vice-Chancellor of Mondragon University, Mr Jon Altuna, the Managing Director of Bilbao Metropoli-30, Ms Idoia Postigo, the Managing Director of Bizkaia Talent, Mr Ivan Jimenez, and representatives of several professional associations.

The Provincial Councillor, who congratulated the students, stressed the fact that “one of the bases of the Talentia service is collaboration between companies and the academic world” and she pointed out that this cooperation “promotes university talent and facilitates the integration of youngsters in the work market”.

The students who received the award also had the opportunity to hear the testimony of an ex-student of Talentia Skills, Mr Julen Ferro, who spoke about how the programme had helped him and how the skills and knowledge which he acquired opened doors for him and enabled him to have international experiences.
