Cenarrusa - Bizkaia Talent Leadership Program

Bizkaia:talent, A non-profit association, promoted by the Territorial and Economic Development Department of the Territorial Council of Biscay, has the mission of propelling and fostering the conditions and processes for attracting, retaining, and involving highly skilled persons, by promoting the innovation and advanced knowledge areas of Bizkaian/Basque organizations.

Bizkaia:talent is made up of the following members: BEAZ, CIC bioGUNE, Iberdrola, Idom, Industria de Turbo Propulsores (ITP Group), Kutxabank, Mondragon Corporation, Sener, Deusto University, University of the Basque Country, Tecnalia Research & Innovation, IK4 Research Alliance, and the County Council of Biscay, the Office of Association President being held by the latter institution's Territorial and Economic Development Department.

The Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture, established by Pete and Freda Cenarrusa in 2003, promotes the culture and history of the Basques by providing resources for performances, presentations and programs to organizations throughout Idaho and Oregon. The Foundation is the entity that can provide the added degree of assistance – financial or professional – that can make the critical difference for any organization that seeks to promote Basque Culture.

Its original goal was to preserve, educate and connect the Basque community and the world through research, projects and educational opportunities by establishing a Basque Studies program at Boise State University. The success of that effort and the overall program's success was a joint effort between educators, business and cultural groups from the Basque and non-Basque community in Boise, Idaho.

Within this framework, bizkaia:talent and the Cenarrusa Foundation for Basque Culture present the Leadership Program for Building Basque American Partnerships 2016, with the aim of developing the talent and leadership of the participants through their learning about the business, scientific, technological, institutional and cultural reality of Bizkaia and the United States/Canada. This link will strengthen ties between both territories as well as among all the participants throughout their entire professional careers.
