Dedalo Foundation for the Development of the Information Society is a non-profit organization in the South of Navarra’s region (Spain). The Tudela’s town council, the Government of Navarre through its Departments of Information Society, Education and Local Administration, and three more entities are involved in its patronage: Navarra’s BIC, Local Development Agency and an ICT Business Association.

The mission of Dedalo Foundation is to promote and develop the Information Society in Navarra. To achieve this objective the Foundation is managing 10 Telecentres and is promoting the organization of activities among citizens, companies, promoters and organizations.

Dedalo has developed more than 20 projects related to improve the use of ICTs through innovative technologies, classroom-based learning and online learning, Social Media and web 2.0, sensibilization in the use of ICTs and Social Networks and in the management and coordination of European projects.

One area of specialization of Dedalo is the ICT training, with 10 years of experience promoting the technological competences and e-skills in the use of ICTs and the Internet. The work developed by the entity includes 2.200 training activities, 23.000 teaching hours and a total of 36.000 attendees.

Another key activity is to become a strategic tool for SMEs and entrepreneurs. Dedalo offers advice services giving support to the company managers in order to think on their ICT infrastructure as a key factor inside the company’s chain of value, helping them to identify needs and finding solutions to solve critical points. In a second step, it tries to support SME’s managers in the implementation of ICT solutions. Dedalo plays the role of an external expert in which they can rely on, giving them advice along the process.
