In this framework, the Director of the European and Ibero-American Academy of Yuste Foundation, Juan Carlos Moreno Piñero, has presented the aims and objectives of the institution he represents to those present; an entity that conjugates Extremadura’s Europeanist and Ibero-American vocation, that acts as a transfer vehicle and gear between Europe, Extremadura and Ibero-America with its activities, creating bridges among its territories, spaces, cultures, with the intention of turning to Africa in the future.

In this 7th edition, reflection has been undertaken on the role of youth and digitalisation as development factors of the strategic associations among the different public and private actors of the three regions that may modernise cities, infrastructures, regional dynamics, as well as science and education models.

Attempts have been made to strengthen the understanding on how the technological transformation may accelerate and contribute to the development of relations between the vertexes of the triangle at regional integration, entrepreneurial spirit, transatlantic commerce, knowledge transfer and new paradigms of urban modernisation level.
