Structure of the WTP


President WTP: Mr. Fernando Pozo

The General Assembly  is made up of all the members registered with the WTP. It is the senior governing body of the WTP, responsible for approving the Platform's activities and, if necessary, its accounts, as well as taking decisions that affect how it operates.


Technological Agent

Technological Agents are a support service offered by the WTP to its members involved in the Working Groups to identify, among other issues, ways of financing their projects.

They are therefore used to boost and directly support the Working Groups. Via this service, coordinators can benefit from agents specialised in the field of consultancy and administrative procedures, who can advise them on identifying potential R&D or IT projects and establish an organisational structure, technical content and Potential Financing Plan for each one.

Technological Agents can be public or private organisations specialised in providing services related to the comprehensive management of innovation
