ICT Gozo Malta – What is it?
The ICTGM projects seek to attract inward investment for Innovation and development in Gozo, and also Malta, leading to the creation of new jobs and opportunities in Gozo and Malta, as well as the development and enhancement of new skills and specialisations which can contribute to the Government aim of Malta becoming an ICT Regional Hub of excellence in Europe and beyond.
The purpose of the project portal www.ictgozomalta.eu is to create a one-stop shop for Innovation, Research & Development, Collaboration (local and International) and Investment.
ICTGM has participation and support from Government and key Agencies, including Malta Information and Technology Agency, the MCA, Malta Council for Science and Technology and educational establishments including MCAST to further the project towards its longer term objectives.
