During recent years, the growth of Information Technologies has reached a point where it virtually supports all aspects of human activity. This reality is not new to Ecuador, so researchers and technology managers have benefited from the use of these technologies. However, the efforts invested to obtain the achieved benefits, in several cases, have doubled due to the lack of spaces to share experiences about the use and innovative adaptation of these technologies, either in the fields of research or tech management.

For the fourth consecutive year, TIC.EC seeks to be a source of integration where spaces are created for researchers, tech managers, and other related participants such as professionals, students, and technology users. They are integrated, share good practices, share the lessons learned, and establish collaborative initiatives seeking synergies through the formation of strategic work groups.
