Education Cluster

Catalonia has a long tradition of education and training. The Internet has made possible the international success of new online education institutions, such as the Open University of Catalonia and the Educational Telematic Network. i2CAT promotes in-depth research into the new generation of providers of online education and online educational networks.



At times, the activities of this cluster overlap those of the audiovisual cluster. These activities involve developing a range of interactive e-learning tools. The following are initiatives the cluster has carried out or will in the future:

  • Creation of broadband educational portals.
  • Intelligent search tools for educational multimedia resources.
  • Profiling of communities of end users and specialists in order to personalise and detect relevant resources.
  • Video services in almost real time.
  • High-quality videoconferencing services.
  • Creation of 3D spaces for education.
