Finally, thanks to an additional contribution of $565 million made by MinCiencias, the financing of two more projects was approved, for a total of 11 projects to be co-financed within the framework of the call.

The topics to be developed by the research teams include work with communities in remote regions of the country that integrate diverse population groups, with the purpose of publicizing the consumption profiles of telecommunications services and audiovisual content (active participation of indigenous communities, memory of migrant populations, analysis of the audiovisual consumption of rural populations, among others), which allows finding innovative solutions to the needs of the ICT, postal and audiovisual content sectors in the country.

"Thanks to the success of the call and the number of viable projects that make up the bank of eligible, we exceeded the financing goal and, with the additional contribution of MinCiencias, we will support the development of 11 projects in total, consolidating this commitment of the CRC to continue promoting the regulatory improvement approach, increasingly incorporating innovation into our regulation, benefiting the ICT, Postal and Audiovisual Content sectors with the development of solutions based on emerging technologies and generation of new sectoral knowledge for intelligent regulation."
