[google transl.] Díaz Morcillo: "The great challenge for society is the management of information, which is almost infinite".

The great challenge of society is the management of information, which is almost infinite. For this reason, we must know how to combine transparency, ethics, security, utility and business, said the rector of the Polytechnic University of Madrid.

Cartagena, Alejandro Diaz, at the opening of the day 'The Opening of data: an opportunity for transparency', held this Friday at the UPCT.

According to the Rector, "this opening of data is understood in the UPCT in two areas. The first, the institutional, which promotes corporate transparency and accountability. The second area is linked to generated knowledge, open and collaborative research, especially science generated with public funds. 

Díaz recalled that the UPCT website was considered in 2017 as the only transparent according to the Transparency Examination of the Commitment and Transparency Foundation. Among other information, the Polytechnic of Cartagena made public last January its first report on Accountability, "the first of a university in the region," said the Rector. The website also published an open-ended report on Corporate Social Responsibility, carried out by the Chair of Culture and Management and Business Ethics.

The Polytechnic University of Cartagena signed the Berlin Declaration and drafted its first version of the Open Access Institutional Policy in 2010. At the same time, he pointed out that the UPCT Digital Repository contains more than 7,000 documents in open access. An increasingly open and collaborative science.

The Rector expressed his gratitude to the Council of Transparency of the Region of Murcia and the Círculo de Economía for the organization. He has also thanked the mayoress of Cartagena, Ana Belén Castejón and the councillor of Transparency, Participation and Spokesperson, Noelia Arroyo for their presence and support. "It is essential that public administrations are the driving force behind this opening up of data," she said. He also thanked the speakers and especially the philosopher Adela Cortina, Doctor Honoris Causa for the UPCT. Diaz stressed that this conference will contribute "to the knowledge of everything that can be done or can be imagined on open data within the limits set by ethics and safety. And this will promote transparency, usefulness and reputation of institutions, companies and public administration.
