The importance of the development of new tools to access information and knowledge is a global reality, but regional challenges make it necessary to encourage the creation of tools to serve different situations. Bahia, with its strong potential in the creative industry, has exported many talents to the world’s largest companies. Now, the focus will be on promoting the establishment of units in the State, as one of the priorities of the Technological Park of Bahia.
Attracting companies in this area will establish a new branch of development, especially in the areas of software engineering, digital TV, games and bundled software, in order to meet both the existing demand and that of clients seeking solutions in Information and Communication Technology. A strong presence of undergraduate and post-graduate courses, as well as technology centers, elevates Bahia’s potential in this area of research.
Exact Sciences and Computer Sciences, in addition to others that are related to these subjects, include 71 research groups in Bahia, with 279 researchers with doctorate degrees and 207 with master’s degrees.
